I spend a lot of time researching the theory side of things and figuring out how to do things instead of actually doing them. Especially things I don't have to do at my actual job. I figure out as much as I need to figure out "if I wanted to do this, this is how I'd do it" and then kind of move on.
I eventually end up doing stuff months or even years later later, i.e. figure out how to do something, move on, revisit topic later, and actually do what I was thinking about doing.
How do you keep yourself motivated? Caffeine used to help, and sometime it does, but nothing really gets me that motivated to sit down and do something unless I have to. If I would've done these things, I feel like I'd be smarter and more capable now.
This is kind of a pointless topic, like, the answer to not being lazy is to do things. I know this. Guess I'm just wondering if it happens to others too.
