    I get motivated by screaming fuck a lot and panicking until the deadline comes closer. Then I kick into hyper mode and get shit done.
    Yup. Panic-induced adrenaline is about the only thing that will kick my ass into gear.
    Fortunately I perform well under (short term) stress.

    uh
    I used to procrastinate a lot. but, I found that doing something way before its due completely eliminates its deadline. i like that.

    I do something along those lines or I find a way to get out of it.

    For instance - I have a housekeeper, so I don't have to do much in the way of chores. (Got out of that...)

    I also wait 'til the deadline comes around and there I am being productive.

    When I *have* to do chores, I kinda make a game out of them like most SPs apparently do. Laundry and dishes are sorting games. Even brushing my teeth is an imaginary toothbrushing competition... Yeah...

    If it's something that involves other people, then their level of interest motivates me. If they all really wanna do something, then I'll get into it.

    Try not doing it and realize how much it sucks. The more you do, the easier it is to do more, etc.
