    In days you find yourself to be at your most productive, what is the main factor that makes you productive compared to the days that you are extremely unproductive?

    do not make plans, just go with the flow. making plans makes you feel like you've accomplished it already, so today i just sat here, and wrote my notes with a few breaks watching youtube and it's quite productive i guess

    Having slept well. If I get a decent night's sleep I want to make the most of the energy I have the next day.

    e.g. I got a good 10-11hrs last night and today was my day off. It has revolved around chemistry revision (my weakest class); UCAS and making a start on planning my personal statement; my pets (hamster needed a cage clean & bath and my largest fish tank (70L) needed cleaned as well); and email exchanges with a couple of people to obtain some information I needed.

    I don't need to set any rules. If I'm motivated then, well, I'm motivated!*

    The main factor is that I have an exam the next day. Or some other kind of imminent important consideration..
    When there's maximum pressure, I thrive. That's pretty much it. Doesn't matter if I've slept enough, eaten enough, if I'm hydrated enough. I tend to work my ass off when I know I have to, and be lazy as hell when I don't feel I do.

    No rules. Just open a book and study for however long I can, which usually ranges from 1-5 minutes until I am distracted. Repeat until full blown procrastination takes over.
