One psych I chatted with about my lack of motivation to get started, and also to finish up, suggested:
– set one day to do project A
– another day to do project B

If you are in full-time employment, then set aside Tuesday evening to do your accounts, Wednesday evening to do another thing, and so on.

A best selling author was interviewed recently. How did she work full-time and write a novel?
She came home, sat down for one hour and wrote.
Then, she changed out of her work clothes, started to organise dinner, and all the other stuff.
The trick was that did not do anything that would distract her.
