I have come up with a new motivational strategy. Whenever I want to get myself to do something, I will refuse to pay my bills until it gets done. Sorry credit card company, I can't pay that bill until I clean the house, and the house is a mess, and I'd rather play video games, so it may be a while.
Better yet, I may at first pay all my bills directly out of my 401k for a few months. Not because I can't find a better way to pay, but because I refuse to pay normally until I get those chores done, and they're not getting done. So I will draw on my retirement account as punishment, and once it runs out, I will then refuse to pay any bills.
I call it the United States Congress Plan.ï»¿
