I think not getting anywhere in life is a very long term goal and long term motivation

its better if you focus on the short term first and set a small goal

how about aiming to do a 30minute/1 hour session for starters and just starting with organising notes/compiling all the teaching materials needed

take smaller steps and set up properly and Im sure you can do it

Hi there uncreativedennis

As ForestShadow says, looking very long term can actually demotivate you, look shorter term, so A-Levels will get you into university (if that's your aim), then you have the longer term of A-Levels helping you get the career you want.

It's much easier to implement and stick to a regular and successful study schedule if you are studying SMART.
o Set yourself goals.
o Make study techniques that promote greater results.
o Ask for help.
o Reward yourself for progress.
o Take a Break.

S: Set yourself goals for study. For example, make up an exam/essay question and work towards answering it.
M: Remember VARK. Are you a Visual learner, Audio learner, Reading learner or Kinaesthetic learner. Use study techniques that will promote the best learning for yourself.
A: If you are struggling with anything ask your teacher for help. Their job is to help you with your studies. Alternatively, use study guides or the internet to help breakdown tough subjects.
R: When you hit your goals, complete work and meet important deadlines reward yourself with treats. For example, make watching an episode of your favourite show your reward for completing tasks.
T: When you’ve finished studying take breaks. Go for a walk, hang with friends or get a cup of tea and watch TV.

I hope this helps!
