I'm working on ways to self motivate and keep me working on tasks even after they are boring.
Setting a timer and working while the timer is going, then swiching to a short rewarding task cycle has proven effective, but it's deciding on a task to work on then picking up the timer, and starting. It is too easy to just say it can wait and putting it off.. And always has been..
Shaming, anger, recrimination saying "it just NEEDS to get done" in a louder voice and disappointment have been predominant approaches by parents, loved ones and myself.
Unfortunately after 36 years these ideas still haven't worked.
What do you do, have you tried, or heard or read about to help motivation for that first step, and all the steps afterwards?
