hi. i find it really it really difficult to actually sit there and do my work as i very easily fall asleep are there any tips on how to get motivated also what is the best method of revision?
Block internet access, it's the only way to regain both your motivation and your soul.
I get motivated by waiting until a day before the deadline then crapping myself.
For me it's a uni offer..
Gosh, OP, just force yourself! Listen to some music which makes your mind get all active..
And do bit by bit, not the entire thing if you have bad concentration.
Youcandoit. Youcandoit. Youcandoit.
i find it helps keeping the work you should be doing beside you... right now i keep having breaks from revision, but my revision notes are right beside me and they keep looking at me, so it makes me feel guilty when im not revising!
Try out different revision techniques and find the best method for you personally. I find it easier to break each subject down into little chunks and highlight the most important bits. Then once I've done that I rewrite all those highlighted parts in my own words (writing it out is the only way I remember things!). But like I said, find what works for you by trying different methods.
As for motivation, I set myself goals and try to stick to them! Rewarding yourself when you've met them may keep you motivated.
i just thought about the career i wanted. realising that working hard for a year now would potentially change my life forever was pretty good motivation.
What I've done this term is written down what I need to do and by when, and then written down the day I will do it. it means that I have about 1 thing to do a day, and it will always be in the back of your mind you have to do it, and so sit down and work.
I've tried all sorts of things but I find that the only thing that really works is KNOWING that I am the only thing stopping me from doing work, if I waste time it is MY fault, and all it takes is actually DOING what I've set out to do which isn't physically very difficult. Not wandering off onto TSR or Facebook isn't actually difficult, I just used to have a mentality that said it was.
