Best ways to motivate oneself when self-studying:
Its quiet amazing how the education system alters what we can naturally do best. We can do well when performing naturally. Nevertheless, the following can contribute immensely towards the productivity of our efforts.
- Remove all distractions
- Disconnect the Internet
- Set up small study times, with small rewards
- Little and often is best
- Don’t keep a To Do list, write a Have Done list instead
Procrastination is the enemy of productivity – but that nagging task will still be there every day you avoid it, so try and get the thing you are avoiding the most done as quickly as you can manage!
