I'm planning to pursue game development/design as a career goal, being a senior student in computer engineering. However, I have a problem.
There are periods of time when I'm so motivated in learning new stuff, practicing them, trying to make use of them, reading more and more, coming up with ideas and even enhancing them. These are the times when I feel like I really want to be inside the game industry. I want to be a part of a game that influences people, makes them extend their imaginary world and so on.
But there are also times when I just don't wanna do anything, not even play any games or study. Not because I'm relaxed and think that I'll sort it out later some time, I just simply don't want to do anything. I keep on procrastinating and doing nothing until I run into something (an inspirational talk, movie, story, game) motivational. I feel like this takes a lot from my precious time thinking the fact that in a year or so I will be graduating.
I really want to know how I can constantly keep myself motivated. How do I do it? How do you guys do it?
Thank you all in advance.
