Checklists and to-do lists that you make with numbered or lettered priorities can help here, too. List what you know you have to do, then do it. Refuse to be distracted until that list is done. Good luck!
If it’s something that I dread, then the faster I get it done the more time I will have for things I enjoy when I reward myself for a job well done and challenge my mind to see the benefits of the situation. As long as a good intention and shift of focus is in place, I am good.
If not, I like to go out in nature and reflect and mediate or play with my animals and children if you have any. They usually give a good and fun perspective on life.
Keep a clear vision of the benefits or rewards of what you’re doing
Find someone whom you can be accountable to

- How do you find time to read?
- 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?
