Lately, I've just felt my overall sense of motivation slipping... I'm just in one of those phases of my life. Half jokingly, I've commented to my wife that I'm considering hiring a personal drill sergeant to get my discipline / focus back. Ideally, I'd hire R Lee Ermey to call me maggot a few times a day. I was poking around on the web and found this gem: http://www.rleeermey.com/Podcasts/ He's got a few things on there that would make a good alarm clock track... we'll see how it works.
