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 !
Dogan U.
I love learning too and it is posssible to lose interest in something u had alot of interest but you have to make ur mind that i can do this.Yes when a person loses interest in something that thing seems boring, but think of the results that thing will bring, and enjoy it while doing so, yes u can leave things in which ur not interested in but if that thing helps u in life then try to enjoy that thing or take a break from it for a short time and when u'll continue again, u will realise how much u missed that thing and u will be interested in it again! Best of luck! i know u can do it!
Rafael S.
Think about the goal every day. Make alarms to motivate yourself. It’s hard to stick to something but once you get used to it, it will get easier.

I have to make things fun, novel and educational for me to continue literally anything. I also need to have the materials/plan in order and accessible to carry out a task consistently. I go to the gym everyday because that task is the beginning of my morning routine and sets up the rest of the day. If it’s just random, I won’t see purpose in it and won’t do the task.
Edo Z.
I found out that the reason why this was happening to me was that I was too impatient. I wanted to reach mastery in those things and see progress as soon as possible. I’m now trying to enjoy the activity without looking forward to the results.
Nicoline X.
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
Wongel T.
Vocal training is one of those things that sparks an interest and goes from time to time and though it is hard to continue after a certain period, doing it regularly surely does show its results. I would like to do it on a daily basis even if it’s 5 minutes a day.
Margarita F.
It might be a good idea to challenge yourself to do a specific thing for a month (eg dancing lessons, poetry). In this month try to reflect on your action (do you enjoy it? Is it as good as you thought it would be?, What do you like the most and least?)
. . N.
Not overthinking about your reaction to the things that seem to get less interesting and fascinating, may help you love the things you learn and do in a natural way.
Don’t worry about the realablI
Richard P.
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!
Kaja E.
i'm pretty bad at this and have the same problem but i think you should dedicate a certain amount of time to the thing you're trying to stick to and make it a part of your schedule every day or every other day
Sssandy X.
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.
Sofie B.
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.
Marit I.
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.
Am Lie E.
I think you should have done that. Because, when you choose to learn, you must do the uninteresting work. Not before you realize the benefits of using it.
Lucas C.
Maybe you should revisit what made you take interest in the first place. Perhaps you need to remember how you felt when you were first starting. Or find something that gets you motivated to do/learn said thing.
Lauren W.
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.
Ate O.
You should take either brakes in between ir u can try to set small goals and reward yourself each time it is complete for example if u have take notes of a chapter then you can reward yourself like if i studied for 50 min i get to watch an episode of anime but make sure u watched it once so thar u won't get sucked into it or you can read the ch and then reward yourself whatever suits😊
Lotta A.
I like to make things fun. But maybe if you’ve tried everything, that thing is just not meant for you and you’ll feel no something else.
Elisa S.
Try learning about 2 or more different subjects. That way when you lose interest in the one you can switch to the other. After all in high school didn't you learn about 8 subjects at a time?
Jennifer J.
I think I need a relevant motivation for doing something for a long time. Anyway if I like something I will do it just because I want it. Maybe if I seem not interested enough suddenly I need to look to a thing on a new side to find some other attractiveness in it. Also maybe I need to find another better or additional motivation for completing it. Sometimes i see that for some things I'm not grown enough. With time I understand them more deeply so I have a more understanding and motivation why I need it.
Isabella P.
It's great that you love learning new things but with that may come boredom or lack of interest after a while. My tip would be don't limit yourself to just learning one thing at a time. If you can try learning two things or three things etc…beacause then you aren't limiting your self to just the one thing and you will be able to find out what you really like. Try as many new things as possible and if all is good you will love it!!!
Belkisa E.
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 .
Saima A.
You can try to learn in a different way so that you won't get bored. For example, you can read your lesson and try to frame your own question so that you feel better by studying. You can do whatever you want. I just gave an example so that you understand. You can study by also taking quizzes online etc…
Ella N.
If you want to keep going,make the learning process fun.If on some days, you don't feel like doing it , atleast push yourself to do it for a short time like 10 minutes. The key here is to be consistent and not break the chain ,no matter what you feel.If what you are learning is something that you need to do like studies then remember to not base your studying on your feeling and interest level at the moment , sometimes you will have to become tough and just push yourself. JUST DO IT. And remember, be consistent. That's the KEY.
Julia B.
Take the time off as a time to reset to remind yourself of that you love learning! It might also be that your schedule might be draining your energy, so giving yourself some space and time will allow you to regain that focus ❤️
Ruth T.
That's really tough because I struggle with that too. For example I love reading and playing guitar but because of school I rarely have time for it. What I'm currently doing is that before I go to bed I read a few pages of my book. And when it comes to my guitar I just pick it up whenever I hear a song I really want to play.
Gertrudes P.
I have a problem in staying focused on 1 task. But I learned from Fabulous that you can start slow and small. You want to exercise (which I always failed to do before) start like doing arm stretching (3 minutes) first and then 10 squats. I do it in the shower or before going to bed. Then try to get used to that and gradually add a couple more workouts the following days. Do it at your own pace. This works really well for me. I hope this helps .


Saint Jude N.
Okay, first I think before you starts doing stuffs you should be able to know wha you want to at achieve the end of it. After knowing what you want to achieve and why you want to you can then move to setting goals or making plans on how you want to achieve those goals( Maybe creating a To-Do-List will be worth it.

Secondly; you should not start doing things because you feel pressured by peers or maybe any social influence. Do things because they make you happy and not because you want to join the long trend or silly train, lol….. Doing things because they make you happy doesn’t mean you should be inflicting pains on others or maybe enjoying your present and destroying your future!!!

Tutu D.
Sit down by yourself and get a pen and paper and write down the things that you like to do and that you enjoy doing and try each of them and then decide what makes you feel the most happy and that you can continue to do always
Julie J.
It could be something to do with adhd or something of that kind with a "follow the dopamine" kind of mentality if not it could help to set a routine for time to do said thing and create a few large goals with smaller goals to reach them. Hope this helps.
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.
Abd Nago N.
My tips can be helpful to you
• Write it on paper and hang/paste
in front of where you spend your
most of time.
• Create a wallpaper of your phone
in which it should be that " The picture of the app,And a promise."
( You can also write Which will memorize you that you made a promise)
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.
Ricky W.
Reflect why you want to advance in one particular area. When you have made a long way progress may eventually become slower or at least feel like it. Look back at what you have accomplished. Cone template. Re-evaluate if that thing still gives you joy you. If so continue. If not reconsider your priorities.
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
Sara Y.
I suppose developing a habit would be the best way to stick to some important thing one needs to do but becomes reluctant to after some time… Once the thing becomes a habit, you do it automatically, without putting effort into forcing yourself to do it.
Christian C.
Yes I feel sleepy and quit it I don't know I just brun out from it. Once I commit it to done but some time lose hope I really want to change my self the way I thing and have strong mindset so that I can keep moving and finally successful
Irmela O.
You can try following the routine or stick to the thing that you like to do and after some time you will get onto it and another way for if that does not work is to watch people doing the thing that you want to stick too and soon you will feel the need to be productive and stick to the thing that your really want too and try to understand and enjoy it first really hope that this helps
Reingard Q.
Even if I can't get it done when I think or feel like I should, I work on at least accomplish unit in that same day that I had made the goal
Heidelinde R.
It doesn't matter actually. Trying something that you think you interest in is the point. Maybe now you think you are not that interest in but you tried and saw. If you didn't try you wont see right? Good luck :))
Fabiana S.
First thing it is about interested if you're not interested in something don't do it but if you are interested that you First feel like it is boring but when you start putting more focus on it. It will become interested. Try to learn how to keep your focus on something. I hope this will help you.
Giulliana G.
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!
Karina F.
anche io ho questo problema ma l'importante è pensare quanto ti sentirai soddisfatto e sollevato dopo. per esempio non mi piace allenarmi ma se penso che avrò un bel fisico mi sforzo e lo faccio. oppure studiare, se penso che poi andrò bene e non mi rimarrà niente da studiare dopo mi sforzo e faccio quelle tre pagine in più
Nigel N.
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.
Gilbert F.
one thing that always helps me learn is that I always think about what I will become in the future, I always work and learn for my purpose. All you have to do is believe in yourself.
Warren T.
There are do many different activities and hobbies out there that you can learn and participate in, and a lot of them may look interesting to you at first. There is no fast way to find a hobby you enjoy, the only way is to keep trying different things until you finally find one you love. But as a tip, don't give up immediately if you feel like you aren't interested, you might just be in a bad mood or unmotivated.
Gaelle A.
I personally wait for a while if I'm still interested in that thing I learn about it and stuff and I also download apps to find motivation to keep doing what I like and reach my goals 🙂
Welamae E.
Maybe you should start small. Allow yourself to be a beginner. James Clear taught me in building long lasting habits, that the problem wasn't knowledge, the problem was consistency. So if you get caught up repeating same old you, it doesn't mean that you do not want to change, the problem is not you, the problem is your systems.
Tim G.
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.
Maya E.
I try to make it a game because I am extremely competitive. I will set small goals or steps for myself to achieve and I celebrate every "win". It's even better when I do it with someone else, because then I have accountability. If all else fails, I do it for Future Me, as if Future Me is a completely different person in an alternate reality that needs me to do that activity to survive. Okay maybe that's a tad melodramatic but you get the gist. Good luck!
Marie Y.
I think the right way to stick to a habit or one thing is about first to ask ourselves " Why am I doing this? For who am I doing this?". If we lose motivation we may find it with questions and answers.
If we want to keep doing something (habit) we should have the right attitude and motivation.
The motivation is coming with the attitude. The attitude is coming from us. If we lose motivation we must ask ourselves " Why did I started this?".
Marlow Z.
Before indulging yourself in a activity or a hobby think to yourself beforehand “what will this do for me long term” and “do I actually want ti do this” and if your unsure or leaning more towards a con answer then it’s probably not worth it.
Roger O.
Lol, pity Fabulous sent me this question… I can't really give any advice because this is a thing I struggle with as well. I'm not gonna say: "once you find anything you're really passionate about blahdieblah" cause that's not true. I have found interests and yet its hard to commit to any of them.

Good luck with your life <3

Joshua W.
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
Rubby Band I.
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.
Brandon F.
Perhaps you weren’t as interested in that thing as you thought you were, and there’s nothing wrong with that! It’s much more important that you tried, and found out it wasn’t your passion then to never have tried at all.
Jay P.
i do the same thing as i hyperfixiate on things then never come back to them- i think the best thing is to just try new things then stick to one if you really like it
Jessica X.
Is it important to you that you stick to things? Some people genuinely find it better if they constantly switch. But if that's not for you, try focusing on what you like – journaling the fun times, reflecting on improvement, no matter how small. I find that helps you look on the positives and learn to enjoy it more, as well as push through the difficult times or not as fun parts. Good luck!
Rokaiya N.
Take time,Find something you love.Then take time to test if you really love it.Then ask yourself if you love it.If you answered yes without hesitating than you will unintentionally stick to it.Remember you can stay true to yourself.Hope you found your amswer.
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.
Wei R.
Always persist and encourage yourself to do it. I will always tell myself that after I finish this, it will be completed and not left undone:) another thing is that I make sure I’m focused and that I really want this thing to be done to benefit myself. Things you do is benefiting yourself and not others.
Adifah N.
It's alright we all go through this phase once in a lifetime don't pressurize yourself do what makes you happy you will find your interest and will find your true self just keep going be productive and trying new things is a good sign and don't forget to love yourself🤗❤. Hope it helps you!!
Noga X.
Write down your goal. Make a chart of days, and when you did it, tick it. After 2 weeks, make a chart, but of WEEKS. Try that for a month. Keep with days/weeks (whatever makes it more easier and comfortable for you) and tick it. After a while (maybe and probably it will take some time), it will become a habit and a huge inseparable part of your life.
Rokaiya N.
Take time.Find something you love.Take time to to test if you really love it.Than ask yourself if you love it.Stay true to yourself.If you answered yes without hesitating than you will eventually stick to it.Hope you found your answer.
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.
Albana Q.
I can remind myself using different methods and if I try to give up I can look at successfull people to make me want to continue working hard to reach my goal so eventually I can become the successful person I want to be. I can also look at role models to make me want to be persistent and continue to work hard.
Amber J.
Just keep doing with what you think is right even if you don’t want to do it. Find something that you know you like or something you have done in the past and maybe that will help you
Rui T.
i have ADHD so i tend to hyperfocus but with a lot of my learning it’s things i like a lot so i just cycle through the on a like one week in one week off kind of thing
Ochaname N.
Hmm.. I can understand how you feel. I have a hard exam and I can’t focus. Here some tips that helps me to study with passion. First: if you want to learn about something try to learn about the things you are interested in. Then you can slowly go to the other things. Second: imagine how this information will benefit you in the future and try to put some examples to make you feel interested in it. Third: when you are about to study make the environment that u will study in more comfortable. you can light a candle make some coffee and have some snacks besides you. Fourth: promise your self if you study for 45 minutes you can have 15 minutes break or you can decide the time that suits you. I have so many tips but I will stop here. I hope that will help you to love learning even more.
Ines A.
well, i think you should choose something you like. you should be relaxed with it, and have fun with it. sometimes it’s okay if you don’t want to do it, it’s your choice. when im doing something i like, i love to hear music, just having a great time. i hope i helped!
Kawther X.
Take a rest and think about it deeply, try to attend ur heart what's ur passion in life, what you want, and try to focus on one thing that shows up right now in your mind
Hope it was beneficial and helpful
Inaya E.
Watch videos on people doing it. For example learning how to play a guitar. In this case, watch your fav artists playing them…..the more you watch, the more you get inspired to try it out. Trust the process 😊
Alexandra Y.
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
Aisha W.
well you can try to make a memory that can remind you of what you enjoy doing it like taking pictures, tell someone, or teach them OR you can just write it in your umm idk your diary, notes somewhere that you think its the best <33 (p/s youre doing just great keep breathin and full your day with bless and kindfull)
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.
Leah G.
When you feel yourself swaying, if you truly loved your intrest eventually it will come back up and you should try fighting through your block or reconnecting with the roots of it. Remind yourself why you liked it and maybe set new goals. But sometimes you just outgrow some stuff and if after all this you still cant find your passion maybe take a step back and come back some time later down the road.
Nishma W.
You can creat a goal for yourself. Like I love learning languages but after some time I also loose interest so what I did was take a challenge and set up a goal. The goal was to have a 365 day streak for the language I am studying. It’s really helping. I def recommend. Other than that you can set up a goal for just hours each day and reward yourself with something you LOVE. Hope it helps
Muxe A.
Force yourself to do that thing even when you feel like quitting or seem to be losing interest because what happens is you begin to form what is called muscle memory which means you mind and body become more and more use to what you are doing there after it become hard for you to stop
Eshu F.
My addiction my habit Something that has been controlling me since past 4 years even after help i just can't do it but with this app k hope I'm able to get some improvement
Gabrielle S.
Give yourself time. Time is important to understand and to get to the heart of things. Moreover, not everything can be of our interest. Find the topic you like the most and learn more about it paying attention to what you are doing. Another important thing is to be concentrate because our mind can goes from a side to another and it causes us distraction. Just notice what distract you and gently turn back on the thing you are doing. Good luck!
Ivana F.
Maybe you could try some reminders to help you, you can always remind yourself that you are doing it to make yourself feel good about you.
Louise P.
This is a thing that I recently overcome! The truth about doing everything good is that it stops you from being excellent in something. The answer is self discover!! Trust me it really works 🙂
You like everything because you don't know what you are looking for. Narrow your interest to thinks that don't just look cool but to those that give you your identity.
This seems like a abstract thing (because It is) but the i" like everything "part will stop soon. Good luck 🙂

I think that sometimes we find things interesting when we first look at it, but probably nothing is good as it seems. Just take your time to search for a really interesting and if for you hobby.
Apar Cio A.
You could just make yourself understand that when you started learning you did because of your interest but somethings is this journey are not going be easy they gonna be tough while doing that make music Playlist with songs you get motivated and while learning or doing that play the song in the background
Edward L.
What works for me is streaks so I don't give up cause I can see how hard I am working so get an app that gives you streaks

1- Take that goal seriously
2- decide on accomplish one goal at a time
3- break your goal into parts
5- make a tracker
6- reward yourself on achieving your goals
Pio S.
Hello, I struggled with the same thing as you do and still do. Although I am looking for more advice about that as well, I do know one thing. Making a commitment takes time and energy. You have to believe you can. Life is about trial and error, so keep trying new things. You know you have found something that makes you happy when you have the motivation to keep going and when you fall get up again. I hope this helped you a little bit.
Sonam F.
I want to work hard just like my parents. They work very hard and I am trying my best to do so.
I want to become a good being who can help others, one who is always punctual, and to become more productive.
