How To Motivate Yourself To Study

Post by emmy on Wed 30 Dec 2015 - 19:55

For many of us who are in school or working, a time comes when we need to write one examination or the other. Finding the motivation to study is usually an issue. We are usually swamped with more interesting activities vying for the same spot as the time for studying. And so because we sometimes aren’t motivated enough, we easily forget to study. Trust me it’s easier to watch an episode of Game of thrones than sit with textbooks that are sure to make you drowsy. How then do you motivate yourself to study?

Here are some tips to help your motivation when next you are faced with an examination

1. Start with a goal
This is because “If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way. If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.” Jim Rohn. Why do you need to study? Why is important that you pass this particular exam? Define these goals, write them down. Go ahead and visualize what you can achieve with this examination. Would it give you a better shot at an executive position in your company? Would it help you secure a job? Then let the lure of the executive position and the prospects of a new job be in the forefront of your mind each time you want to study.

2. Break the main goal down into small winnable goals
The examination you are studying for may have 7 modules. You can give yourself a target of learning one module every week. When you break down tasks into manageable tasks, the mountain disappears; all there is are just winnable obstacles to your goal.

3. Form questions as you read and write them down in a jotter.
When you are done with each small winnable task, try to answer these questions. In answering them try to assume you are lecturing a child on what you have just read.

4. Appraise yourself
Review the answers to these questions with the text, your motivation will increase when you have rightly answered some of the questions on the small manageable task you have just completed.

5. Revise the questions failed
Go back and revise the questions that you flunked.

6. Repeat steps 1 to 5 for each of the remaining modules
