This question is directed more towards the hobbyist developer rather than professional game developers. Quite frequently while developing a game I'll get bored staring at the same exact game scene after days or weeks of work (while new features only slowly creep in) that I find myself abandoning projects and starting new ones, never really finishing what I've started.

How do you prevent yourself from getting bored with a hobby or side project? What tips/tricks/techniques do you use to keep yourself motivated to actually finish a project?
