That depends on what your distractions are.

Well when I use the computer I tend to go on facebook and youtube a lot. Also, my friend comes over like everyday. I usually can work on my project for about 2 hours straight then it just gets tedious.

Don't invite your friends over and disconnect your computer from the internet.

Turn on some "Eye of the Tiger", punch some raw meat, and FINISH THE GAME!

Don't try and work on it too much is sometimes the key. Say to yourself that you're going to work on your project for 30 minutes without stopping. Or maybe just 15 minutes. Work yourself up until you're able to work on it at a comfortable pace. It doesn't have to be two hours every day, since schoolwork is important, as well as socializing. Find a good pace and stick with it.

Well sometimes when i have worked more than 80 hours/week or more in my dayjob i got that same feeling. Just thinking of working on a game makes me feel that i have to throw up.

Anyway, you are a kid and you are only 1 time kid in your lifetime. You need to spend time with your friends and make fun. You can't have the same kind of fun when you are older. So don't spend too much time working either.

Get your friend involved, but from his own house via the internet.

Remember when viewing youtube that most of those roller coaster crashes are fake anyway.

Facebook makes you more stupid every time you look at it, don't use it. If you must aquire slow brain death somehow try womens glossy magazines, same effect but they can't hold anyones attention as long.

Hmmmm. If you feel you have to force yourself to do something that should be fun, creative, interesting, challenging and potentially profitable, you need to decide if this is what you really want to do.
