Discussion on: How do you handle days where you just aren't motivated?

Here's the thing. Sometimes fear is motivating and sometimes it's debilitating. For me, my motivation can either come from fear of not meeting a deadline, or in the case of self motivated projects, my lack motivation comes from fear. I generally have to spend some time working out what I'm so afraid of before I'm ready to tackle a lack of motivation. This mostly applies to a long term lack of motivation for personal projects and such. When it comes to chores and reading a book or something like that, it has more to do with a lack of focus for me; I don't have many strategies for approaching my ADHD patterns. I just kinda just deal with that one. If anyone has any suggestions let me know.
