hire a professional motivator? that probably takes some motivation though. i think motivation has to come from inside. its a hard one to help someone with, sorry.
thats about the size of it. once you get started its easier. good luck
In the service, you get up at 6 a.m. even if you just got in at at 4 a.m. The old "just do it" I suppose. When I wrote my novel I would whine (to myself) about writer's block and definitely felt a lack of motivation but, tenaciously I wrote everyday until it was done. Same thing now with my weight loss and exercise program.
Usually wait until it's unavoidable
Ah, there's some people that can do fine with that but others cannot. I suppose, for me, it's a blessing and a curse. I could do much better but I can't get motivated so it's always last minute crunch.
I think about the consequences if I don't motivate myself to get the task done.
I have experienced that with school work. I force myself to begin the task and after a short time I find I am actually involved in what I should have started an hour earlier.
Start a document. Begin composing this paper. Don't worry about orginization, grammar, spelling etc. Just let things fly. This may get those creative juices flowing within you.
It was something I saw in a writer's guide as a way to break writer's block. My literature professore suggested the same as a way of finding your voice. There will probably be something usable in your "ramblings". That is what I intend to do with the paper I have ahead of me. Good luck.
caffeine and a kick to the jimmy
more caffeine and watch an mma fight, or the view... they tend to get the adrenal glands pumping.
