Life without a motor?

I've never had much motivation to do anything, or much ability to persevere, and this makes life a chore. I feel like I was born without a motor - like other people have some source of energy inside that drives them towards their goals, while I tend to just drift passively and hope the things I want come to me (they don't).

stickK - did it work for you?

Does anyone use stickK? Has it worked for you? Any tips for making it work for me? I really need to start exercising regularly but I just can't get motivated to do it lately, so I thought stickK might help. I'm interested in hearing from people who have used it for anything, though.
