The Beer Strategy
Sometimes I use beer to make myself productive. I don't use it as a reward for completing a task, because TBW warned me that I would start rewarding myself for trivial tasks like tying my shoes. I usually use the beer when I'm not getting much school work done. It's really good for essays. I used to try to crank out a page of essay before finishing the beer. Whatever. Even without the fun of games like that, there's another motivating factor. If I get something done then I was productive and that's good...that means beer = good. However, if I don't accomplish anything then I'm a worthless alcoholic. Nobody wants to be an alcoholic, let alone a worthless one. I don't think that beer has ever let me down when I've turned to it to help me push through writing an essay.
