Hey all, I am wondering how people in this area are and how are you all coping with motivation. I am constantly on ups and downs for my motivation and I am either doing rapid sprints of days with non-stop tinkering on projects, or I am either supper demotivated and can barely do anything.
What's your take on that? How do you manage to cope with demotivation? Can you return to your full potential manually, or are you waiting for the spark to light up again on its own?
I'd highly appreciate any advice. Thanks!

I have tried num. 5 a lot of times but I always seem to break the cycle. Gonna give some of these a go, again. Thanks!
Hahah, I've struggled with 5 as well!
Personally having gone through a dip, and needed motivation, here are a couple of personal hacks.
Here are my personal idea's:
Make a written list of why you do what you do, what are the things you want the most, also what you dont want to happen if you fail. Stick this up where its always visible.
Simple and famous, yet I haven’t tried that method yet. I only had a message on my old phone but I always ignored it haha.
kkkkk, i wil try it for first time myself this year
This is a tough one. A 20-minute walk works for me every time.
I am usually doing it in the morning. Eventually breaking up the routine and starting to get up 3 minutes before the daily...
To be fair, I try not to rely on motivation, just disipline.
Keep thinking of monthly bills maybe 😆
For me :
Ah, the joy of finding a new song that you like. Superb! 🎵🎵
