That's exactly what I do @chandelier. Especially in English when we have timed essays and stuff like that.

I'll happily do my sport homework which is practicing kicking a footy though!

Re: [CHAT] What motivates you?

yea thats a good point ryvb3 - if you are doing something because its your absolute passion then motivation is easy. but if it's because you are fulfilling someone elses dreams (parents, for example) or just doing something becasue you think you "should" then its easy to not be motivated...

@chandelier @ryvb3  I totally agree too! When you're following a passion or your heart and the 'work' isn't even work because you're having fun. You wake up everyday motivated!

Positive reinforcement! Rewarding ourselves when we have achieved the set goal for the day. A snickers bar for every 100 words on the essay yummmmmm Smiley Happy

As others have said, little rewards along the way... like I can watch this TV show if I finish this uni reading, or whatever. Also try and have some longer-term ones- like maybe a nice holiday after a full-on year- and try and keep the long-term aim in mind (e.g. picturing yourself in your dream career, and seeing each little bit of work as a step towards that)
