    How do you guys stay motivated? I mean I finish work and I just seem to veg out infront of the PS3 playing Modern Warfare 2 I have a urge to get hands on and learn some stuff recently I purchased the 70-680 book this was 2 weeks ago I have read one chapter and installed the O/S on one computer lol.

    I'm sure being left behind by your peers as they progress in there career, being on the same money, never being able to afford to buy a better/newer car, always living at home with your parents in a box room and having no cash to treat yourself to the finer things in life.

    Nah, I'm not motivated either to put the effort in, I prefer not bettering myself, makes life much easier.

    Craigie's one liners:

    Keep doing what you have always done and keep getting what you have always got.

    The first sign of madness is to keep doing what you have always done and expect different results.

    If it's to be, it's upto me.
