I am a mechanical engineer by training but I love computer programming. All my programming skills are self taught, so if I dont understand the lingo, please forgive me.

comment What could I do to convince myself to finish my projects?
@hellectronic I agree with your comment on external approval. I wish I could have the internal drive. I tried to have it for many years, thinking I dont need external pushes, I am self driven. But it never worked for me. But now that I have a goal to accomplish and people cheering me on and making me accountable, its become like a game for me. And I am trying to make other things (like studying PhD) into a game, something I can achieve in small blocks and rejoice. I am making small progress. Like I said. This may or may not work for everyone but it got me started and I am grateful for it.
