A developer asks the community: How do you maintain the motivation to finish projects? It’s a simple question, but what lies beneath the surface?
In this episode we discuss both the simple answer to this question, and what is usually the deeper, more scientific answer. If you’ve ever heard of concepts like “self-sabotage” or “self-handicapping,” this episode offers the actual mechanics of this phenomenon as well as the causes and the steps you can take to break the cycle.
Stop stopping, start finishing.
