Motivation

I have a question for all you readers, as this is something that I seem to be struggling with recently. What keeps you motivated and focused?

It seems that i am not alone in this problem, I think it's fairly common amongst programmers for their mind to wonder every now and then. What keeps you motivated?

Of course I'm talking about anyone here, not just programmers.

  1. Watt Mann, I would agree, although I would be talking about drugs such as caffeine, maybe even alcohol in moderation.

  4. interest in what i am doing, if i am working in a project i like and i really want to complete than nothing can stop me.

    On the other hand if i work on something just because i "must" and i am not "insipred" by it, meh, i'll work badly.

  6. Thanks for all your answers, i can relate to most of what you say.

    I think that Kevorkian is right, if you're determined then you are far more likely to succeed in my opinion... and loloriz0r is right, if you feel happy, then you won't be so disheartend by any problems that you encounter.

  10. Interest. However, interest fails, when you fail to do something, and you are unable to receive help with programming. That's one of these moments for me, I'm getting lazy again. Probably because i was unable to even install Visual Studio for about a week, maybe more, because I've had problems with my PC, but that's unrelevant. So anyway, basically interest keeps me motivated. And when it fails, just think, that it needs to be done. Sometimes helps, sometimes not. If you start writing the game/program again, it just starts to feel good after a few minutes, even though you wasn't motivated few minutes back.
    Just my opinion, personal experience.

  11. newn, i see what you mean, the way I see it is that sometimes you just need to pull your finger out and get on with it, then you will actually start to enjoy it.
