Have you had trouble motivating yourself over boring, ugly, illogical projects? I have. Quite a bit more than I’d care to admit.

Here are some ways to keep yourself.. relatively motivated even when working on those crappy projects.

– Try to implement something cool or new and make it a learning experience. (check out sites like https://freefrontend.com/ or https://codemyui.com/ )
– Try some totally different design that’s out of your normal comfort zone
– Try challenging yourself to finishing the project as efficiently as possible. (at least it’ll be over quickly)

Tune in to hear me talk about working on those kinds of projects.
