I'm working on the last 20% of a project that has dragged on too long.

I've lost interest. I'm not on a time crunch, but I've been dragging my feet for too long in any case.

I'm sure some of you know how that goes. I've never handled this situation very well.

Does anyone know any tricks for motivating oneself to code something you don't want to code?

Weird question maybe, but there it is.
To err is human. Fortune favors the monsters.
