Hey pit,

So I have quite a lot of work to do, but I have absolutely no motivation to do it :/ I've realised that this is something that I struggle with pretty much all the time, and was wondering how motivated The Pit is.

So, on a scale of 1-5 (1 being 'not at all', and 5 being 'extremely'), how motivated are you to do things such as school work, housework, etc..?

I'd have to go with 1.

tl;dr: I'm not motivated to do stuff. How motivated are you?

Please call me Rainer, was 16 and empty minded when I made my profile.

Sometimes I talk to myself too...but never on the internet.

I don't really have any motivation to do start my coursework right now but for other stuff I guess i'm fairly motivated... 3 I guess.

I'm motivated to work hard at my job, but I couldn't care less about school.

It depends. For example: I'm extremely motivated to run to the pub to drink some beers, but I'm not that motivated to run as in a physical excercise at all. That'll have to change, though.
I'm pretty motivated to get this SuDoku done.
That's about it at the moment.

Though I just cracked out my physics knowledge which hasn't been used for about 3 years to help my friend working out Newton's Universal Law of Gravitation. Felt good to do that, and I was determined to get it right.
When it's my own work though....forget about it.
I have 1 day to write 18 pages of work out......I say I'm a 1 :P

I did think about the size, but it shouldn't be too much of a problem because I like thick ones anyway

That's what she said.
Depends on what school work i guess. Anything from 1 - 4 so I'll go with a 3
Tomorrow starts the first examweek of the college where i go to. I haven't done anything because of personal stuff and the classes are just boring. Thinking of dropping out for the second time.. anyway life is a bitch.

I'm pretty motivated to go play A Link to the Past, (I'd say about a 4) but that's really the only thing I'm motivated to do right now.

As my old guitar teacher once said: Metal really comes from classical music. The only difference is pinch harmonics, double bass, and lyrics about killing goats.
So it´s 2 and the reason why it isn´t 1 is cuz I love to rock parties!
How often have we chased the dream of progress, only to see that dream perverted?
More often than not, haven't the machines we built to improve life shattered the lives of millions?
And now we want to turn that dream on ourselves, to fundamentally improve who we are.
Experience has shown me how dangerous that can be.

I said 3... But now that I think about it it's probably more like 1.5...

Prolly a 2-3. I've been a bit more motivated recently since I've found something I'm good at, enjoy, and will most likely be a good career to works towards, but I'm still incredibly lazy and unmotivated.
Always 1.

I've noticed that among my friends, the ones who get good grades and get things done on time, it's not motivation that drives them, it's self-discipline. They don't enjoy it, but they know it needs to be done.
My motivation never comes from any sort of internal source. It's always pressure coming from teachers, parents, and/or peers that motivates me to do coursework or cleaning, or really anything.

I gave myself a 1.
I'm not motivated to do anything anymore. Senioritis is kicking in.

I wanted to underline the 'THIS' but I wasn't motivated enough to do it.

I'm feeling kind of motivated for once.
The problem is that I just don't know what to work on and I can't find anywhere quiet and secluded.
I was going to click on 5, but I didn't really feel like it. I ended up clicking on 1. Don't judge me, I just have a lack of motivation. I really deserve a 5, but I don't feel like giving myself it. Could someone else give it to me?

Things that restored my faith in humanity this year: 26
Things that removed all faith in humanity this year: 1,563,745,234 (estimated)

so that's a result of -1,563,745,208 faith points in humanity lost, which is actually up from last year!
I have a bunch of problems I've done nothing to solve, so a one.

Theory is descriptive, not prescriptive.

Quote by MiKe Hendryckz
theory states 1+1=2 sometimes in music 1+1=3.
Well it depends. If it's something like housework or chores I'd say 1 since I don't live on my own, if I did though that figure would jump up to a 4.

I wasn't motivated at all to do homework/schoolwork when I was back in school, but that's because I was a selfish prick who only payed attention to what I found interesting. (Read: Music class and lunch break).

When it comes to working I'd say 4. I'm never completely ecstatic about it but I do my best.

When it comes to anything else (such as music, writing, swimming, rugby etc.) I'd say 5.

Put that on your poll TS
2. Revising for exams is boring as. Being injured means I can't train. Life is dull atm
No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable
