i usually get motivated by urgency. If the need is urgent, I would (want it or not)do stuffs i assigned to.

I agree. When we feel the urgency, and that feeling is stronger than the urge to stop doing, we simply at least keep trying. Cheers :)

Personally, I think of associated "fun" things. For instance ... There was a time when I wanted to be alone someplace else. The real urgency was to make payments for the bank loan. I decided to work overseas and earn enough to pay the dues. It was also fun because I got to travel and be someplace else :) There was a time when I simply started with the easy things. Soon, I was enjoying what was getting done. The harder tasks were also getting completed. Finally, one of my favorite "self-deceptions" is to make a list of things that need to be done. I include also the things that have been previously done. I tell my self: "Ruperto, you are already half-done! why stop now? " Cheers :)
