Motivation follows action.

If I am lying in bed at six in the evening, paralyzed by dread and despair, the right thing to do is not to wait until I feel like doing something, but to force myself to do something, because that is the only way I'm ever going to feel like doing anything.

I wish I had learned this earlier, because I would have spent less time in bed.

Right now, for instance, I am forcing myself to write about forcing myself to do things, and you can see for yourself how much good it has done me.
