How do you deal with loss of motivation?
Sometimes there's no way. One thing that helps me is I keep track of what I'm doing over time. I wrote an article about that a while back: It's so easy to take yourself for granted and forget all that you went through to reach your current state.
Just ride it out and try to psych yourself back up
I don't.
What have you been up to today?
Just did a hefty clean of my room for an inspection that never happened. Can't say I'm mad because I really did need a wake-up call to sort it out haha.. You know its bad when you can distinctly see 'eras' of the depression clutter
What are your tricks of 'getting things done' ? For me washing the dishes and 7 minutes workout.
If I'm doing the dishes willingly, I know I'm deep into procrastinating.
Although I fail to do it so often, i have a little "30 minute rule" where if something takes less than half an hour to do - i have to do it instantly. Laying in bed and remember you haven't sorted your laundry out? save yourself the anxiety about procrastination and get it over and done with.
A 12 minute timer. I look at a task (folding laundry, doing dishes, etc) and tell myself I only have to do it for 12 minutes. It's not even a full quarter hour, so I can add in some bonus time if the timer beeps and I only need a couple minutes to finish up. Would you say more about your 7 minute workout?
To get things done, just do not think about it:
That's difficult for me. I feel like I lack self motivation, and sometimes I have an irrational fear of getting things done. I just keep expanding or perfecting something that already works, or find random projects to work on instead of doing actual work. Meditation has helped me in the past, but recently I've been procrastinating even that! I guess my one "trick" would be to have a HARD due date. Like a mean boss wants to see this done by next week or they'll yell at me.
tell me something you did not know a month ago.
Building or fine-tuning Neural Networks is harder than it looks. Fundamentally society is build on violence and it's inhibition. I enjoy broccoli after 28 years of thinking otherwise.
There exists Li ion batteries with a high enough amp draw to compete with some of the lower/mid range Li Po batteries. If you dont mind sacraficing a bit of agility, you can get 20 minute + flight time improvements due to the 2-3 times increased energy density and whatnot.
