Help I lost my Mojo Answered

Picture of

Help, I dont know why but  I've lost my motivation to write Instructables.  Ive got a number of nearly finished instructables, ( go kart   vinyl cutter  ) and a 1/2 finished 3d printed cnc mill project,  just need a push to get them done.
Anyone got some motivation I can borrow?

Yup. Plus nothing I've done recently has been original. Little electronics projects, a bit of gardening, some mediocre woodwork :)

Remember the Zeroth Law - even if the end product has been done before, you could easily have a superior process or write-up.

And what about the science contest or the data visualisation contest - is there nothing in your work you could document for those?

Oh i'm all about providing purpose, motivation and direction.

Go grab your full kit and meet me out front for an easy 4 mile boot and uniform run. We will do it at 0400 in the morning to avoid the heat. Be 15 minutes prior to 15 minutes prior so I know you didn't oversleep. Oh and if you decide to drink an 18 pack of beer the night before, get an IV from the medic so you dont become a heat casulty.

Every time your left foot hits the ground I want you to sound off with Instructables leads the way.

While we are doing this remember.

False motivation is better than no motivation.

Ask not what you can do for Instructables, but what Instructables can do for you.

If its not raining, we are not.... ok I will stop.

Have you read FM 7-22? Read up on "corrective training". You'll be so upset that you'll put the sewing machine down and write to your congressman.

Surely you don't want to disappoint the young group of wizards at the school and enter their go kart in the https://www.instructables.com/contest/fullspectrum2...

ibles Mega contest. The project is a good one.

The vinyl cutter is a good one for the https://www.instructables.com/contest/gadgethacking... gadget hacking contest.

You at least need some more Robot T-shirts for the summer. You gotta be in it to win it!
