Shameless Bribery

Right now I've got a lot on my to do list and, to help me through it, I'm bribing myself. I try not to use bribery too often, 'cause the last thing I want is to become dependent on it to get work done. However, right now I need whatever help I can get. Enter the Twizzlers. Mmm... They're great writing bribery because they're easy to eat without making a mess. These says, I hardly ever have them except when I'm bribing myself, so in my head, Twizzlers have become forever tied to writing.

Do you ever bribe yourself when you need to get motivated? What do you bribe yourself with?

All the time--daily, in fact. And usually with food, which is not the smartest bribery (since it means you have to buy larger pants if you're successful).

I've tried to bribe myself with other things, but nothing works like M&Ms...

I agree with Fleur :) I bribe myself a lot, and when it's not with chocolate, it's with time to myself (watching a TV episode, for example) :)

Oh, yeah, I'm a bribe myself kind gal.

Food, of course, although chocolate is rare. Movies with popcorn. New CDs or a craft project. Anything I like is game for a bribe. Even games.
