    I’m a very bright student and achieve top grades consistently. However, as my course moves on at school and we begin to cover parts of the syllabus that are unknown to me.. I’m realising that it’s going get harder to try and revise the old stuff as well as the new things I learn. However, there’s a problem. I’m extremely lazy. I just can’t be bothered to sit down and study. I know if I do for even an hour , I would easily complete my work. I want to study more than just doing homework (because usually it’s useless homework anyway). I’ve tried many times but I end up getting distracted and just giving up. What do I do to cure this laziness?

    Thank you so much for recommending this technique to me. I'm yet to use it but I will in the upcoming Easter holidays. Thanks.
