How can I make myself do stuff?

I can't make myself do anything. I've never been able to. I want to accomplish so much, I have goals, but for some reason, I just can't make myself do all the things I know I'm capable of. How can I turn this around? Is there a name for it? What should I do? [more inside]

Why am I so useless?

I am a useless procrastinator, I see it happening, and I can see the outcome but I can't help it, I feel out of control almost. It's something I tend to deal with okay at work (a more direct task-based environment I guess) but at home it's terrible. [more inside]

Around the world but still stay in one spot?

If the right helicopter were to exist, could I rise X number of feet (not to far mind you) above the earth point myself in the right direction hover there and then watch the world go by underneath me? How fast would I have to go and should I bring a change of clothes?

Fantasy Baseball for lazy retards

So my friend and I want to do fantasy baseball this season, but we don't know the first thing about running one. Compounding the issue is the fact that we're too lazy to rank players, and too busy to constantly be tracking stats. What's the easiest, most low-impact fantasy baseball system for a couple of lazy fanatics?

Has anyone ever changed from apathetic to motivated? What happened?

Since developing bipolar disorder, and subsequently being out of work since April 2005, I find my motivation and concentration has gone to be replaced by apathy and what must seem to others like laziness. Has anyone else been in a similar situation and got themselves out of it, and if so, how? [more inside]

need uv protective sunglass without lense deviders

I have been searching for sunglasses that do not have separate lenses. I have a lazy eye and a bulky nose piece or any kind of separation that blocks my peripheral vision, ( is it still "peripheral"l if it is the vision from the side of the eye toward the nose?) screws up my depth perception and gives me headaches, not to mention causing me to trip. What I need is a strip of lens material that wraps seamlessly across both eyes. I have looked at bikers glasses but they all undulate at the nose which causes a visual obstruction. They need to provide protection from uv, uvb exposure, it would be nice also to have halfway decent optics.

Jump-start my writing process!

OK, I'm trying to write my latest masterpiece, and I'm doing everything but... Any tips on writing routines? Not blocked, as such. Plain lazy is a definite possibility. But seriously, anybody have a fail-safe way to get up in the morning and get going?
