I ask myself if I'll be happy with the outcome of doing my work as opposed to not doing it.

You need discipline.

Motivation comes later after you've learned something and doing those things starts to become leisurely. Video games are designed to be like this, the first few steps are easy so you are having fun right away and you know you will succeed eventually even if you fail, but in real life you have to read books, you have to study and practice things over and over, you have to spend hours searching and researching only to discover you were wasting your time all along and have to start over and do it again before you even scratch the surface of accomplishing anything of note.

Someone who relies purely on video game style motivation will be disappointed and depressed. Discipline is there to help you on this journey, especially at the start when you are a fumbling beginner wondering if you're wasting your time or not, it helps clear the mind of all the irrational emotions and thoughts associated with this ordeal. Yes, the world is full of bullshit, but your rational mind says this is the most likely path forward, so keep pressing on. When you are distracted and don't know what to do, do something, anything, if you can't think of anything, find something.

Fuck work, leverage.

Hard work is a meme. The stuff I enjoy doing I don't consider work, and the stuff I don't enjoy doing (cleaning / cooking / washing clothes) I pay other people to do.

The key is to get rid of work that you don't want to do, as in the $10 an hour jobs, then focus on what your goals are (for me it's reading 2hr a day / trading / working on business / lifting).

If you do have shit you still need to do because poofuck, I found the best thing that worked for me was 'bookending' my day, so I have a routine in the morning / routine before bed. Start with adding 1 task at a time, keep it up for 4 - 6 weeks, then add another one, slow and steady works.
>>
>>1781490
This bookending sounds interesting. Can you give a quick rundown on your average day and the different segments that make it up?
>>
>>1779779
'Motivating yourself' is an oxymoron. Motivation is something that happens to you. You can do what you want, but you can't want what you want.

>>1779941
I used to be like that until I found out I have a huge ego and that I need to be the best. You'll become depressed in 20 years when you'll see that one classmate who became a fucking politician while you 'only' make 100k/year.
