    Default What gets you going?

    What gets you going when you have to get into the groove to do something?

    For me – It's music and a snack of some specific type.

    For the music part, I usually start off with some Daft Punk, then switch over to some Tiesto, switch over to Celtic/Nordic music, and finally, I loop Polska Release – Sanna Kurki-Suonio.

    For snacks, it be something like some flavored chips - sour cream & onion, barbecue, crispy chips and chili cheese dip – some french fries, maybe just a very, very, large cup of some soda drink, possibly a bowl of pecans, might be a pile of granny smith apple slices, a few lemons to lick for about ten minutes apiece, so on.

    Oh, and fudge.

    I'm usually pretty motivated everyday. When I need a boost, I listen to music too. I listen to jazz, intrumental, pop, blues, r&b, hard/alt. rock, and relaxing music. If music fails then I just end up doing nothing lol.

    Procrastination – A life style.

    If I don't feel motivated to do something... well, you can expect a highscore on some game, somewhere, to be beat.

    depends on what im doing, like if its stuff school work then music helps sometimes, but that usually distracts me from what ive got to do. i usually think about whether i want to fail, or get the job done, and sometimes i start exercising to get my lazy self some energy.

    if its something like cleaning, well the bad odor usually helps. >_>

    Eating.... It's a horrible habit of mine. I really should stop eating just because I'm bored. I sometimes try to go outside, too. That usually makes me want to start doing something.

    What gets me motivated to be productive? A quick glance at Anandtech/Bit-Tech/[H]ardOCP makes me want to earn more money to buy the latest stuff.

    usually i like to have a lot of the little things that pester me done. Like not be hungry, or a small craving of something. Me wanting to have some free time, gets me going a good amount of times...

    Music, or atleast a reward in the end.

    The sooner I wake up, the sooner I can start on my work/finish and go back to bed. Just thinking about it makes me happy and want to keep going.
