There are several things that I want to do, and know I would benefit from doing, but can never be ARSED to do!
It really gets to me. I know I have the intelligence and knowledge to do these things. And I now doing them will open doors to even better things to do. But the motivation is no-where.
I really really really want to learn 3d programming with directx. I have got as far as rendering a teapot and changing it’s colour. But whenever I read helpfiles or look at example code or anything that would help me learn it I get so fed-up. It brings back terrible feelings from University when I had to study insanely boring things that I had no interest in.
It’s like I really want to be at a destination, but I really don’t want to do the journey.
The point of this post - How do the ‘dopers’ motivate themselves to do non-compulsary things. Self-improvement for example?
