For me it's when people I want to impress are doing it.

Why was I able to BTFO Verb in Tetris? Middle school crush played that game

Why did I do MMA religiously for 6 months? Buncha interesting characters my age in the gym. Felt like an anime

when it's my last ever chance to do it, or if something extremely bad will happen if i wait a day longer

not that i work well under pressure, but it does give me a pretty nice boost of adrenaline to help motivate me in a forced and superficial kind of way

ideally, i'll just have a self-motivating innate passion for whatever it is i want to improve on

So long as I'm well enough, whenever I'm interacting with someone much better than me at something I want to be skilled at.

I actively avoid motivation, but generally I feel the most pressure to get something done when people are relying on me. I don't know if that's really "positive motivation," which is what I feel this thread is going for, but that's what really does motivate me the most to get shit done.

His eyebrows sparkling, his white beard hangs down to his chest. The thatched mats, spread outside his chise, spread softly, his splendid attos. He polishes, cross-legged, his makiri, with his eyes completely absorbed.

He is Ainu.

The god of Ainu Mosir, Ae-Oine Kamuy, descendant of Okiku-Rumi, He perishes, a living corpse. The summers day, the white sunlight, unabrushed, ends simply through his breath alone.
It's harder to describe it as something (or maybe it's nothing more) than when I feel inspired to do it. Pretty touch and go for productivity, but I do feel pretty damn satisfied when it happens.

If I'm not here, I'm doing Photography. Or I'm asleep. Or hungover. One of those three, anyway.

The current titlebar/avatar setup is courtesy of Father Dougal McGuire, from Craggy Island's Father Ted.
When it's in my interests to do so.

Can't take good pictures with my film camera (fucked up exposures, light leaks, blurry shots...)? Learn how to camera. Now I take the occasionally dodgy shot, but now I just have to focus on composition rather than if I'll get a shot at all.

Next big step is to self-develop my rolls of film and shave a ton off costs.

It’s more like he’s realizing that he’s been typecast as “Black Panther”, and that he’ll never have an actual acting career after capeshit dies out. And that he’ll be reminded of this every single day every single time he meets a black person. Imagine if Hitler lived after WW2, went back to art school, but everyone just wanted him to do the Nazi thing, even though the Nazis were dead for years. Imagine being known as the leader of a dead nation when all you want to do is paint buildings and shit.
