Forty Two.

When you’ve lost all motivation.

This week Frankie Tortora and Steve Folland have a chat in response to a question from science writer Richard Berks. He says:

“Alright gang. Any top tips for finding motivation when you have none, but desperately need some??

I’m sure I’m not alone in finding that when I most need to get some flippin’ work done, I seem to have the least motivation to do it. That precious time, while the kids are occupied, or after they’re in bed, and you have a list of things you need to get done… and then bleugh. Not feeling it. List doesn’t get done. Feel bad.

I know I know, we’re all trying our best in a difficult situation, but really I sometimes need to give myself a good kick up the bum. I know there are lots of amazing people in DIFTK who are experts in getting shit done when time is tight — so how do you do it?”
