@kathyytt How can I keep myself motivated? What I find hard is just starting it and sitting down to actually do that work.
thadcoxdesign I would recommend prioritising the time you spend working on whatever project it is. Treat it like a meeting and put aside a block of time in your diary everyday dedicated to it.
Make sure all other tasks have been done, tell everyone that it is important that you must be left alone during that time - no distractions (your responsibility), no interruptions (their responsibility).
By having this time set aside everyday (1 to 2 hours) you will start to make progress and hopefully the progress from each day will provide motivation for the following day.
