    To motivate myself, I think of all the slimeballs in the world- possessed of a seemingly preternatural store of energy- who are doing their damnedest to make the world an even more stultifying, spiritually suffocating place, and then convince myself that I am the only hope this wretched world has.

    Routine is the best thing for me. I know that by doing the same thing each day at the same time, actually getting work done is much easier.

    Also take frequent breaks. I rarely work for more than 90 minutes at a time. I take a 15 minute walk around the village and have a coffee. That way teh day doesn't stretch out into oblivion with 9 hours until home time.
