Every week I write up to three new articles like this one. And every week I struggle to find the motivation to get started on each article. On Sunday night I make my to do list for the week ahead, and think about how quickly I’ll get to work on this week’s articles. But by Monday morning I’m struggling to get started.

The worst thing is that this happens to me a lot. It’s led me to do embarrassing things, like googling “How to get motivated”, or browsing the GetMotivated subreddit.

Which, of course, are just time-wasters that leave me even less time to get my work done. The work I still haven’t started.

So it’s time to figure out how motivation really works, and how to reliably get more of it.
