Lately I've been feeling really demotivated to work on my own personal dev project and its been like this for weeks now. I really don't know how to change that 😣

So I want to find out what motivates you to work on your own dev projects? 😊

    Literally it takes me having something else that I can ignore.

    House a mess? I think I'll do my project.

    Need to work on something else, even for work? I think I'll do my project

    Honestly I haven't done any side projects for years, I once reached the same point as you have. Nowadays I am happy to separate my professional from my personal and private life and I am no longer disappointed of myself.

    I know that this will not help you, but life goes on anyway 😉

    sheer grit and determination at times, at others, to just simply have those that are more talented that me take a small interest and get involved.
    Then of course the avoidance of doing housework also seems to be a concurrent trend here as well.

    I just get an idea, expand it in my mind until it sounds tempting and then I just can't help myself.
    I think you need a brake from personal projects and maybe a vacation or just a regular exercise routine to get you excited about personal projects again.

    Find out what's demotivating you. It could be your current work or it could be personal.

    I think you need to find it useful for your own needs first and foremost. It needs to be something *you* need so you put your heart and soul into it and most importantly your time. That’s just my opinion though.

    @2erXre5 Totally agree, sometimes it’s just too much, and living your life takes priority if it’s too much of a time investment and little payoff.
