    Default I need help with motivation

    I\'m entering my 1st mini contest with this Total Testosterone mini I\'m working on. But I have a problem. I\'ve lost all motivation.

    I don\'t know if it\'s nerves (\'ve been obsesing on the smallest details) or that I\'ve fallen out of love with the mini, or if I\'ve just been working on it too long.

    I need help, guys. Motivate me!

    How long have you got left - put it aside for a bit and work on something else for a while then come back to it - thats what I\'d do -

    Course, I\'m working on gold piles myself right now, so . . . . .

    Needs to be done and posted by midnight on the 15th. That\'s what I keep doing....\"I hate that part. Let me work on THIS untill I can figure it out\"...it\'s an ongoing cycle.

    all you have to do is force your self to do just one brush stroke and then all feelings of apathy will dissipate, i mean it:innocent:

    You can do it kiddo. (haha thats a funny term coming from a teenager:D)
    This is what i do when i feel the apathy rising when i am painting:
    1. stand up, leave room.
    2. go and make a cup of tea.
    3. while the jug boils, go and get my mum\'s Tai Chi Chuan CD and put that on (it\'s nice, relaxing music).
    4. take my cup of tea back to my room.
    5. re-organise my desk, get it cleaned up.
    6. take a sip of tea.
    7. cross my legs, close my eyes, and speak softly: \"I can do this.\"
    8. Get back to painting.

    There we go. if you don\'t have that specific CD then just get a relaxation CD.
    there\'s my 2 cents. i expect after this i\'m going to become the forum hippy.

    Well, if it\'s a total testosterone project you don\'t want to be listening to calm relaxing music, you need some good old fashione rawk\'n\'roll or something very heavy.

    Shame, Billy! You let someone SEE you with one of your girls? Did I teach you NOTHING?

    Wait....that was before my time....

    NEVER let anyone see you with one of you girls! Why do you think you and I never go out?

    thanks guys! I\'ll get my ample \"blah blah blah\" back in the chair and finish the big guy tonight. The bloddy mess on the ground will be easy. I\'m actually looking foward to splashing some gore around.
