Why am I here?

Actually.

Why haven't I been here?

Turns out my account hasn't deleted, I forgot my own username.

Well, for now- I wanted to get some 4&0 from people on a video I watched.

Now according to the video, three things cause motivation:

1. Autonomy (being self-directed)

2. Mastery (getting better at something)

3. Purpose (why you’re doing something)

I think that there are 4 main reasons for lacking motivation:

1. Having shitty goals (I wanna make an MMO, LOLZ!)

2. Not using time effectively (doing unimportant things very well)

3. Anxiety of failure and therefore failing anyway

4. Being tired and having a lack of energy(Eat green foods!)

What about you guys?

What keeps you from getting shit done?

Every comment here as an example?

You should just recruit people to read your blogs on Atodev, 64Digits sucks at answering the questions of inquiring minds. (seriously.)

"Why haven't I been here? Turns out my account hasn't deleted, I forgot my own username."

If my username also confirmed to no logical structure and held no identity for me, I'd probably forget it too.

"I think that there are 4 main reasons for lacking motivation"

Yeah, and you're wrong.

"What keeps you from getting *beep!* done?"

Maybe it's the same thing that keeps you from acting your age. Or am I mistaken about that banner being completely obnoxious?

Honestly, I don't complete projects because I take too much on at once.

I have so many good ideas that I never develop any of them to fruition. :\

I'm starting to get better at not doing that.
