• If this job really must be done (and if it was your own decision, but not social pressure or coercion) by clear, accurate and reasonable calculation, if accurately prioritized – so doing this job should finally give energy and pleasure. If not giving energy and pleasure – it is wrong job, or wrong priority (wrong time) so ir should be consciously sabotaged/skipped. So think twice.
  • So if it is right job – doing it should give you breakthrough of energy and pleasure for a day or for longer time. Focusing on this usually gives me enough motivation to focus and do such job.
  • Additionally think ant plan good and specific pleasurable reward or rest which you will give yourselves immediately after job will be done. This is absolutely necessary, because of neurobic reasons and because of necessity for body to rest after work.
  • And most important about motivation. In most people brain sides think and act half or semi-independently. Only high integrity personalities have more less synced brains. So mainly such motivational conflicts happen because of lateral brain functionality differences. Idea is that one part of brain which is responsible for action – can’t act if motif for action is too weak. It will not move a finger for weak motif. So the other part of brains, which calculates energy has to show enough high, attracting, worthy goal. It seems, that in your case final goal is too weak to actuate acting side of brain. So in other words you have to learn how to convince yourself, i.e. one your brain side convince other brain side. In fact it is yet another example of main and biggest problem of all humans on earth. And it is called dilemma of self motivation.
  • If you did not clear calculation which type of job is it –  100% meaningful and purposeful  or empty and that’s why brain can’t act or decide. You can’t easily trick or cheat yourself. But if you nevertheless managed to chronically cheat yourself often – so this situation is a bitter fruit of your self cheating.
  • So once again what do you do: either you focus on final pleasure after breakthrough through doing the job, or you sabotage this job, because it is wrong job and energy time waste
