I set up a "I'm not working on my bike until I do X" constraint, the goal of which was to encourage me to stop procrastinating on a long term task I'd been avoiding.

The end goal of which has been... to not even start that and also not have a motorbike. That was 2 years ago. I have the conviction to not break that constraint, but apparently not the conviction to get started on the larger task I should've addressed years ago.

Also...

My source of free batteries dried up. And around here, motobikes are a 4-5 month a year thing. So I didn't want a half-complete electric car, and I paused before committing any batteries to the bike, which is all it's waiting on.

Meanwhile, I didn't really plan on starting my EV car project so soon, I was in a "keep an eye out for what kinds of cars you might like" and one fell into my lap way sooner than planned, strike-when-the-iron-is-hot kind of deal, so... then I started sinking a lot of time into the car EV. Which hit the same guilt for avoiding the same thing I was avoiding by working on the bike. So I've since put a moratorium on the car as well. ... which also hasn't worked.

I also bought another electric scooter, only missing speed controller, for $75 total. Couldn't turn it down. So now I have... 6 EV projects in various states of non-completion and all paused.

shrugs

Struggling with motivation and intimidated by the growing pile of other necessity projects needing doing.
