I’m having a productive day at work, but sometimes I have NO motivation to get things done. This also goes towards house cleaning, improvement in my hobbies, etc. What do you do to motivate yourself? I am food motivated! If I got alot done at work, I’ll also get myself a “treat”, like a new chapstick or cute earrings or something like that. I’m not above bribing myself.
How about you?

I’m not above bribing myself either. Or playing “beat the clock.”

I usually tell myself to pull up my big girl panties and deal with it haha. I hear you. Some days I feel like doing zero work, especially with the lovely weather… I could be by the pool instead. I also play beat the clock and try to speed through things that I know I can and be done by a certain time on projects.

I’m really bad at this too. Obviously, cause I’m here.
I forgot about beat the clock! That’s a good one. Sometimes (for work) I’ll say if you get this one big thing done, you can have 20 minutes free time or if it’s the end of the day, I’ll come on here. But mostly I end up doing this – taking lots of 5 minute breaks throughout the day.
But I here you, when I was in college I was always working on something and getting shit done – I had to! Now it’s like meh, I can order our wedding pics whenever, meh, I can clean the bathroom next weekend. There’s no deadlines staring me down anymore.
