How do you keep yourself motivated?

Although I'm pretty consistent with my daily activities including work, sometimes I feel down. I stay motivated by thinking where I was a couple of years ago, but also thinking of how my life can change if I keep progressing forward. How about you?

One thing that often worked for us has been to focus on 'getting in the zone' (meaning starting stuff and get thing rolling), and 'finishing is better than starting' (meaning, finish stuff we're working on and keep WIP as low as possible). For the first part, my cofounder wrote a short blog article about techniques he uses in order to help him get into the zone: https://www.kitemaker.co/blog/th...

I think about this frequently, we are human to feel down sometimes and we just have to accept that. Sometimes it's the small things, like just going for a walk, learning a new CSS property that can bring you back or to give you that kick up the ass. I learned to embrace the small things, which could lead to bigger things. I stay motivated by making things fun, making mistakes, staying foolish. Atomic Habits, currently my favourite book.

It's important for me to slow down and rest from time to time. Don't overdo - cos recharge time rises faster than the forced result.

I stay motivated by having plans, I think that without plans and goals it is difficult to stay motivated. And if I feel depressed maybe it's time to move on to other horizons... ;)
