we all see those threads "i need motivation" ; "am not motivated enough" if you are not motivated its because that money you could have banked is not really necessary to you, you are still enjoying your life without it. You don't wake up in the morning with the thought that your bank balance is shit. you don't wake up with the thought that your future will be shit if you don't get x,y and z done. If you don't see the pain at the end of the tunnel, you won't take steps to avoid it. Pain and pleasure, two things that shape your course of action. I believe pain is a bigger motivator, pleasure on the other hand is only good for dreaming about it. Attach pain to your wrong stuff [ie being lazy] and treat your work as its remedy, that my frnd is motivation.
