I’ve got college work I need to finish, I’ve already passed the deadline but just can’t bring myself to do it, I’ve been this way with school work since secondary, I hardly revised for exams, always left coursework until last minute and still got good grades which I think is part of my problem, I’ve always been naturally quite smart and have never had to work overly hard to get good grades and I think now I’m having to do 100% coursework and learn something completely from scratch I’m finding it hard to find the motivation.

I’ve also got an unconditional place at Uni so I think somewhere in my brain I’m like I don’t even need this qualification as my next step is already set up but I do know it’s important and will be upset with myself if I don’t try and at least finish it.

I don’t want to sound like I’m moaning as I know I’m very lucky to be in the position I am in but I just wanted to know how other people learned to get a better work ethic? Could really do with learning that skill before uni 😂

Thanks, I don’t think it would help me though, I tend to work better with some background noise or I just stare at walls and stuff 😂
