Have you consider attempting to use a Floatation Tank? (A 2 hour float session, helps you feel like you have slept for 8 hours+ and its like a little vacation. Try doing it a few days a week, and you will definately see an improvement)
Using one could really make a HUGE difference. If you want to research this see http://www.floatation.com
(you can even make your own, and they are AWESOME!)
Based on what you describe, you sound allot like me. I listen to motivating music, and am easily distracted )which has negatively affected allot of my jobs).
Consider trying Vinpocetine, and centrophinoxine or DMAE. I have also found that taking Emer'gen-C® from Alacer-Corp (www.alacercorp.com) personally, this has really made a huge difference! I take between 2-4 packets a day.
I would highly suggest that you take B1 (thiamine), Niacinamide (a great B3 source), P-5-P (a great b6 source) and a 2000mcg sublingual of b12 (perhaps 2-3 times a day: This is what I do).
If you will just start doing the above supplements, on a regular basis... you will see a BIG difference.
One other thing that might make a difference as far as your overall mental and physical energy is more sunlight. Now, if you do not have exposure to atleast 15 minutes of sunshine 2 times/day you can with Full Spectrum lights.
Otherwise, you might get fired... and I hope for your sake that your not close to that problem.
I wish you the best, and feel free to contact me.
Does anyone know of a nootropic that can help boost motivation?
I'm currently working as a computer programmer and unfortunately I'm not particularly motivated (the projects I'm working on are difficult, I'm the sole programmer, I'm behind schedule) and things get worse as I procrastinate. I set goals every day and find that instead of working a solid 10 hours like I plan I end up working like only 3 since I am easily distracted doing other things (eg surfing the web or looking for motivational songs to download!). Only a few years ago I could concentrate on any task I set for myself and achieve fantastic outputs. Now what I expect to get done in a couple of days takes me a week. I'm working weekends, all-nighters everything - I need to make up for lost progress, but the more I work the more distracted I get. I've just started nootropics ( see my post http://www.imminst.o...f=169&t=8608&s= ) and feel a little more alert... but my focus and motivation are still lacking. I'm also getting rather stressed and burnt out without much to show for it.
Maybe I need to see a psychologist? I'm sceptical of the whole psychology thing though.
