Sorry for the delay in my response, but I had a few days vacation since then.
NLP - Neuro Linguistic Programming - is a way of putting yourself in a productive frame of mind. It is a set of techniques for generating a sense of optimism, enthusiasm, and moving-towards.
Amazon lists 122 titles when you key in NLP. Anthony Robbins based a sizeable portion of his early work on NLP techniques – you can see this in his book Unlimited Power.
I also read NLP: The New Technology of Achievement by Steve Andreas and Charles Faulkner and found it excellent.
NLP should help to remove any negative associations you might have linked to a task – fear, boredom, apprehension and so on. You should be able to replace them with positive emotions that help you through your work instead of hindering you. After all, the actual work itself will be exactly the same no matter what way you approach it, so you might as well have good feelings that speed you through it, rather than feelings that drag you down.
If you search the web for NLP you will get a ton of info also.
