Trying to stay focused and motizated about your study can often be difficult, but one of the easiest ways is to set some goals. Think of why you joined the course in the first place – career plans, your interest in the topic, and what you want to get our of your course.
Write down all of your goals and stick them to your wall. This can be very inspirational and motivating in your times of need. If you ever feel a bit discouraged, simply look at your goals, and remember how you felt at the time you wrote it.
Achieving these goals is another matter altogether, but you cannot even attempt to accomplish them if you do not know what they are.
There are several easy steps that you can follow if you are having problems with goal setting:
- Identify your hopes and dreams, but keep them possible
- Take 10 minutes every day to imagine how terrific it will feel when your goals are actually realized [LifeHack]
- Set both short, medium and long term goals
- Commit yourself to reaching those goals
Focusing all your efforts on trying to accomplish a series of goals is very beneficial for your mindset, and is a great way to improve your grades through study.
