“You might think it’s crazy and stupid, but it works for me,” he said. “I sit at my desk andwork for 30 minutes without distraction, completely absorbed in my work. Then, after the 30 minutes are up, I drop whatever I’m doing and go do something fun for 30 minutes. During this relaxation time, I don’t think about work at all – I play games, write, whatever, but no work. After 30 minutes, I go back to my desk, rinse and repeat.”
I think this would work for me from time to time when I am struggling to keep motivated on a project!
