What can I do to stick to one thing. I love learning and doing things but I eventually quit and it seems like I wasn’t that interested in it as I thought I was.

Becky T.
You should try focusing on how will this habit be of benefit to you , every time you feel like quitting remind yourself of the benefits , that should keep you going . Good luck !

Focus on it more , create some time for it and find intreseting ways to complete it and always do what you prefer hope u understand

I think you can stick to it by doing it everyday but of course you need sometime to break. since you stopped, why not take a look at it back, maybe you'll feel interested in it like you do before this. and it's always good to try new things too!

Potentially try to set some goals for your interests. It may be that you lose interest because you are getting the right level of satisfaction upon completion.
If you are enjoying a task or topic write down what your goal could be from that topic.
Ie say you love learning Spanish- your goal could be having the ability to speak casually (a social goal) or the ability to read at a certain level (an academic goal)
When you can identify what your ideal goal is for that topic you may find ways of keeping your interest as you refocus on your goal.

write down on a piece of paper what things you want to do and more importantly why you want to do them and why you enjoy them. Then put the paper in eye sight so you remind yourself.

People make time and do what is most important to them, so if you really want it as bad as you want to breath, then you’ll succeed… try listening to motivational speaks too. I like Eric Thomas aka E.T.

Stretching in the morning does help make the day better. One it helps wake you up and two it gets your heart going and pumping the blood through your veins.

Vittorio Y.
I still do and struggle with that.What I've learnt is you don't need to be overly excited about something to stick with it.As time passes and you progress you'll get confident and realise the power of consistency.You don't need to have a great interest to pick a hobby.Every skill requires plenty of time and dedication .No hobby can provide you eternal excitement but upgrading your skills can .So excitement and passion come along the way . Don't forget to remind yourself why you started this hobby anyway .

Owen Q.
Focus and stay in the moment, accomplishing a task that needs to be done is rewarding when you succeed at finishing it.
If it’s something you’ve been wanting to do, but doesn’t need to be done, then don’t let it get to you if you lose interest. Focus on doing what is needful and what you find enjoyment doing.

Curt J.
It’s normal to have different interest and also lose the interest sometime. Don’t be angry about it, try to not spent too much money on a new hobby and just enjoy the moment! If you endure with your new hobby, THEN you can invest more time and money.

Orni P.
That's happened to you because you loose your confidence and patience, so try to gain confidence and start again as you started that means you have potentiality so never get discourage try to fix this and give a bet with something you like take challenges I hope you will becsuccesful

I would try to focus in why are you learning this new thing? Is a new language you need for work? Of for a trip? It will tell you for how long you wanna study… if you have a small DYI project you don’t need to learn a lot about woodwork… if you are removing your entire house… than you will need more than a few tutorials and YouTube videos. I also like to make sure I have the time to learn and to practice what I learn. We all have limited time so we need to make sure we are using it wisely!

Motivation gets you started. Discipline gets you there. Work on forming discipline as one of the fundamentals of your life. Apply it to everything. Discipline is simply sacrificing the minor negative feelings of the now, for the major positive outcomes of the future.

I find myself dealing with this issue alot. But I think to be curious about something or how it works is just a process in discovering yourself. I think back to when I was a child and how I wanted to be a paleontologists because at that time I would be reading books about fossilized dinosaurs. But as a grew older and gained more experience and knowledge, I developed a different mindset and set of values. I think once you start to establish those values you start coming up with a better focus and start to develop goals and plans on how to achieve success in those values. So my suggestion would be just to continue to do what you are doing and the answers will come to you in time, maybe try to set a time where you focus on one area of study at a time. But never be scared or intimidated to keep on learning, because you never know what you might discover about yourself.

You should try new things like reading a book or meditation 🧘🏽‍♂️ or breathing and talk a walk with your dog and it would clear your mind or workout consistently

to remain interested, you have to choose a interest that genuinely means a lot to you, and you're just a lot into it, then you've found a worthwhile interest.

Belkisa E.
Make a list, pick your favorite, and once you complete your favorite, then write it down to remind you of when you've completed something fully.

Natasha C.
I love learning about nails and nail tech. How a nail grows. I want to learn the biology. Safety and study. This is so i can do these services for friends as well.

Lora A.
Truthfully I have the same issue. What I always ask myself firstly is whether I truly love it and am very interested in it or do I like it because others like it and make it seem worthwhile. If 'I' (you) like it, then all you have to do is stick to it. It doesn't mean that having a break from it is inherently bad. Sometimes you may not feel up to it. Sometimes you'll get all in it. It happens. If you like it, you'll get back to it on your own. You'll kinda miss it. And if you really want to be consistent you'll take time out of your day to do it. You want to, let's say, learn japanese, then you give yourself 15min of learning it instead of scrolling social media.

It’s a matter of finding what you want, if you aren’t enjoying it, then don’t do it, or you can make it more fun, start by introducing small things, I began for the first week just by drinking water, I’m now on my 6th month and my life is so organised and aesthetic, maybe it’s not for you, what I found helped me was watching you tube journaling and notetaking videos, I don’t know why but it did, try something like that or you can speak to a friend

Esma N.
Doing my medications every day , so I don’t end up in the hospital .I doesn’t even take that much time so I hope I will do it every single day , I actually started already .

Isa Z.
If you arent able to keep doing something you used to love, then it might just he you gaining newer interest. If you loved learning maybe you arent interested kn whatever it is you are now tryingto learn about. Maybe research and look up topics you would be happier to learn about. If you still arent interested, maybe you just need a different hobbie.

Do what you enjoy. Don’t stick to a formula for each interest. If you only enjoy one part of something, do that one part. Don’t force yourself to go all into something.
