Break up what's remaining into smaller bits and count them off one by one. Make yourself do one a day (or week, whatever makes sense). Don't skimp, don't make excuses why you can't get to it, just make the time and make it doable and reward yourself after each block is done.

And keep thinking about the next fun thing you'll get to do when it's done.
cheers
Chris Maunder
