42/100 Days Of Productivity

image

Today I focused on C++.

Studied some theory, watched some tutorials, learned some new stuff and did some exercises!

For some reason I find it really normal for me to stay in my home all this time. I am motivated to study, but of course, as everyone, I am anxious about this whole situation that is going on.

I hope everyone stays safe and inside their home. And let’s hope this situation will end soon!

Stay safe everyone!

My motivation to do any work on my dissertation since lockdown began has been… zero. Instead I’ve been procrastinating by cleaning the house and baking things like the double chocolate brownies pictured above! However, today I realised that despite my lack of motivation I still have to work on my papers - so self discipline is my new approach, I’ll let you know how it works out! Stay home and stay safe lovelies. // 01.04.20

You don't have to answer this, but how do you stay moticated while studying and doing assignments? I love the Studyblr community, but I don't feel like I'm a valid member in it because so can't stay motivated. I stress about assignments, and end up giving up before I begin.

Hey, 

I hope this post helps you in some way!

Try to remember that there is no single strategy that will work for everyone when it comes to studying and staying motivated. 

However, there are plenty of options that you can try, to see if they work for you. If they do, you should  try and incorporate them into your ongoing study routine. If not, then put them aside and try something else.

The important thing is whether your strategy keeps you motivated, not whether other people agree with you. Try not to compare yourself to others.

Study tips:

Try not to procrastinate too much:

Avoiding work can make you feel deflated. This can be more emotionally draining than having to go through the frustration of reading for your paper. Try to become aware of the habit and gently make yourself go back to the task sooner rather than later. (That being said there’s nothing wrong with procrastinating every now and then.)

Try to understand your studying style better:

What will make it easier for you to work?

We are all prone to pleasant experiences and it is natural that we tend to avoid uncomfortable, dry chores and duties.  So try to make your study experience as interesting as possible. For example, if you’re a visual learner, try making mind maps and coloured flash cards etc.

Take a time limited approach:

Rather than telling yourself, “I’m going to complete all of these tasks today.” try to say to yourself, “I’m going to study as much as I can for half an hour.” In this way you do not get as easily overwhelmed by the volume of study you need to do.

Break the task down into manageable chunks:

A big task, such as writing an essay or revising for an extended period, can be demotivating because it seems so big.

Breaking the task down into manageable chunks can therefore help make it seem less daunting. 

For example, if you have a large written assignment, break the assignments into chunks. Plan out and bullet point what you want to say for each section, then when you come to write it fully, it won’t seem as daunting and you are less likely to stress out over what point you’re trying to make.

Get into a study routine:

It is generally easier to stay motivated if your studying becomes part of your everyday life and routine. Set aside a little bit of time to read notes, plan assignments, etc. Even if you do just 15 minutes a day, you’ll feel much more accomplished. 

(I find that it’s the content of a study session that matters more than the time. For example, it’s better to do half an hour of concentrated study than to do 7 hours of studying where you don’t remember anything at the end.)

Create a schedule: 

The act of creating a study schedule is a form of commitment, so it will help you to stay motivated.

For example: 

  1. For each subject, make a list of the tasks you need to complete in order to be ready for the exam.
  2. Make or download a study schedule template and block out the times you have available each day to study
  3. Create a daily plan which lists the most important tasks to be completed for the day
  4. Review your study schedule at the end of each week.
  5. Assess whether you’re on track to reach your study goals by exam time. 
  6. If you’re not, adjust your schedule by finding additional blocks of time for studying.

Try the Pomodoro technique:

Francesco Cirillo invented the technique in Italy in the late 1980s. Using a kitchen timer shaped like a tomato (“pomodoro” means tomato in Italian), he found he could concentrate better by studying in short stretches.

  1. Decide on the task that you’ll work on
  2. Set the timer for 25 minutes
  3. Work on the task
  4. Stop working when the timer rings
  5. Put a check mark on a piece of paper
  6. If you have fewer than four check marks, take a 3- to 5-minute break, then repeat from Step 1
  7. After four pomodoros, take a 15- to 30-minute break
  8. Draw a line through the four check marks and start counting your check marks afresh

You’re not going to feel motivated all the time and that’s okay:

The fact is that no one feels motivated all the time. So don’t rely on feeling motivated in order to get the work done. Sometimes the motivation just won’t be there. That’s why you need a study routine and study habits, because systems always beat motivation.

Gentle reminder than your notes don’t have to be pretty or aesthetically pleasing for you to be considered a studyblr. Sometimes you just don’t feel like making pretty notes and that’s fine. Sometimes your notes don’t have to be pretty. The most important thing is that they help you learn.
