How do you guys motivate yourself to do things (it can be anything)? I myself find music really helps stimulate my thinking and distract me so I work a lot better when music I like it playing in the background, and it really helps me fly through work.

I do my best work, whether it's mental or physical, if I've got some tunes cranked. Music is something I would find it hard to live without. Getting started on something is the biggest struggle for me, but once I get started I'm good. It's just like in physics, where the coefficient of static friction is greater than that of kinetic friction. :)

Glad to hear I'm not alone in my work process! I also find that having a clear end goal is also very helpful when it comes to getting me going.

Just start doing it! No need for music. Actually, I don't even need music for working out!

I enjoy music too much to leave it out of my routines. It's essential. :)

Well, I like music in my head sometimes - especially when jogging.

Music is a great distraction, I can do things without it, but it's a nice way to get the time to move along a bit easier.

Music could very well be a waste, though. I mean, imagine all the idle time that could be used for studying (while washing dishes, doing data entry etc..).
