In general, I consider myself a diligent person. I wake up with the sun and stay busy for most of the day. My house is clean, the laundry is almost always caught up, the dishes don't pile up in the sink, and I have completed what feels like a million and one sewing projects in the last few months. The problem? I seem to lack all motivation for making progress on my dissertation proposal.
I have about three weeks left to write my entire proposal and what am I doing? Blogging, quilting, shopping for our road trip to the Land of Enchantment, buying presents for Mr. H-B, essentially anything but working on my proposal. I'm sure that, on some level, this lack of motivation reflects a fear of failure/commitment/my committee, but I really do want to finish on time.
Help! What do you do to motivate yourself to get things done?
