Default I need some major motivation

There is only about 1 month left before it starts to get cold enough that I totally loose interest in doing any work on the cars unless of course they break down and I don't have a choice. I'm having a major problem getting motivated. This year I wrote a long list of things to do to each car, purchased all the parts and only accomplished about 35% of the list. I just can't get motivated and will end up going throught the winter saying over and over again that I should have don't more. I've tried everything from doing alittle at a time, to attacking one thing at a time it just didn't work.

How do I get motivated.................and to be honest.......I don't think this post will help, but it was my last resort.


HELP!

Sometimes it'* the wife giving you a helping hand on the car. Or maybe something else..

Try a Monster drink..they sure give me a bit of motivation

Even Cath gave up Bill, I asked her to redue the seat 2 months ago and she gave up after the first day.

Monster drink won't help. I don't need a little motivation.........I need major motivation.

I find it easier to work on other people cars then mine.

In order to stay motivated, take baby steps with your mods and go a little at a time.

Don't take on too much at once.

Every small change will be noticeable enough to keep you motivated and spread it out over more time.
