Motivation is fickle. Cultivate discipline. Set aside time to do something every day. No exceptions. Don't worry about how long you do it for. Discipline is something you can learn.

I agree with this, but when you get drained all day on mindless tasks, you want to go home and forget all that rather then jump straight into work again even if it's interesting own project

Overcoming "want" is the purpose of discipline.
