My most productive study sessions occur when I am working in a quiet place, away from strong temptations (food, computer, bed)
Motivation is not reliable because motivation is an emotion, a feeling, that comes and goes. You can wake up motivated just like you can wake up feeling any other emotions. The key is discipline. Think of the bigger picture. Ask yourself, if you study , will you regret it after? Probably not. Will you regret it if you don't study? Highly likely, because there are consequences to that. This outlook can be applied to many areas of life. It was first told to me in regards to exercise and weightloss but now i use it for a wide variety of aspects.
- How do you test your learning?
- How much time do you spend learning and studying?
- I want to learn something practical like making clothes, knitting, singing, painting … any book suggestion, youtube channel or whatever?
- Sometimes it is quite hard to maintain my focus on learning and studying. I find myself checking mail, reading social media commentary and avoiding the still to be worked on assignments. What can I do to prevent that?
- How can I stay focused and motivated for a long time?
- What are some tips for better concentration and actually learning the material?
- How do you stop yourself from getting distracted while studying?
- How do you find what gives you positive motivation?
- How do you focus for long periods of time?
- How should I keep focused when I don’t make progress on certain tasks? For this case I stuck with the score of 6 for my IELTS writing exam while my target score is 7. And it hasn’t changed even a little bit for so long.
