How do you stay motivated for your web projects?
I have various personal projects I've started, one of them with a good amount of potential. I'm having trouble keeping the drive to work on it. It's been a project off an on for 2-3 years, starting back when I didn't know a single thing about HTML, CSS, or PHP. I slowly developed the skills and can now say that I have all the skills necessary to build a working proto-type that may not be perfected or have every functionality but working none the less. I guess I'm exhausted from school and other things I'm focused on but I really want to knock this out, not to mention that I don't want to quit on every project I ever start.
How do you keep motivated for personal projects? Is it money, enthusiasm, _____? What do you do to push yourself when you realize you're pushing a project under the rug and how do you get back into it? Looking forward to y'alls responses! :thumbsup:
For me its the idea of not working at my current job! LOL
working in web projects for 2-3 years will automatically help u to be motivated by enjoying the work

JohnMacklen makes some great points.
You say you started off 2-3 years ago without knowing HTML or CSS and now you do. Write a list of all the things you have learnt and enjoyed those past 3 years.
Your lack of motivation could just be coming from the fact that you have lost your objective and are no longer doing what you enjoy.
Now make another list of all those things you hate doing, be tough it has to be honest for this to work. Then go through both lists and see what you really should be doing more of. Perhaps you can outsource those things you hate doing.
If that fails then read books by Jim Rohn and Robert Collier, both awesome guys when it comes to motivation and going after success.
Good Luck to you..
Wow, fantastic list johnmacklen, this is also a life-improver list I would say!
I will try following it as much as I can!
Its been possible only by getting good clients and money.
