Im terrible at getting myslef to practice as well. The key, for me at least, is to make time to play with other people. When Im not inspired, I just need another person. When passed the ball I can usually run with it. To keep myself moving forward I need at least 2 gigs a week and 2 days of playing with other people and no audience. Call up the guys in your jazz group and meet 'em one on one for a duet session and a beer, listen to some standards and try a few of 'em youve never played before, and if its a horn player then thats your big chance to play with the chord changes.
