  1. Prepare a bunch of tasks that are super-easy and can be done during low motivation times. The best time to do this prep is when your motivation is high.
  2. Take a break if you need it. Eat something. Drink water -- you might just be tired, hungry, or dehydrated.

keep a list of 2 to 5 things that need to be done, with a clear end goal. work on all those projects simultaneously (get annoyed with one move to the other), that way you are always seeing the fruits of your labor.
