Do you wake up in the morning with no idea what you're supposed to accomplish that day? Do you have so many things you could be working on that you're not sure where to start? When you don't have a teacher or boss to report to, it can be difficult to motivate yourself to do anything. You're not accountable to anyone but yourself really. Sometimes, even if you do have a teacher or a boss, it can still be difficult to motivate yourself when you work from home.
