How do you motivate yourself?

I am currently motivation-deficient. I have to do a follow-up thing for a job interview that requires me to leave the house. One would think, "Oh, packedlunch, you desperately need a job. You're on your way to do that thing right now, right?"

Sadly, it is not so. I showered, got dressed, got all my things together... and collapsed into a ball of tears. I checked my email and voicemail a million times and then cried some more. And now I can't bring myself to leave the house because I don't want anyone to look at me and I'm afraid I'll cry in public. I hate crying in public, and I've done it at least once a week for the past three months or so, so I try not to go out if I might have an attack of the sads.

But while I probably won't get the job anyway, I should at least make sure it's not my fault. What do you guys do to give yourself a nice kick in the pants?


ETA: Thanks to the pep talks from all of you lovelies, I have done the thing! And I didn't cry while being outside, so I'd say this is a small win! Thanks everyone. GT saves the day.
