Break Studying Down and Make It Manageable
If there's one key to motivation it's this... whatever you're working on break it down into manageable chunks.
I propose you learn to think this way instead of looking at the task as the mountain it probably actually is.
I never suffered from that kind of paralyzed thinking. Not because of anything I did (or didn't do) but because, following a 10 year hiatus from college, upon entering Florida State University for my junior year (Go 'Noles) I was lucky enough to get a super tough professor for my first research class... the toughest class I'd ever taken.
I mean, Dr. Colin Peeler made students tremble. He definitely struck fear into hearts. Past students celebrated having survived his class, present students prayed to one day be counted among the survivors, and future students... well, you could just mention his name and eyes glazed over and hands began trembling.
It may not sound like it but he was actually well-liked.
I truly enjoyed that class because he took the essential parts of a publishable research paper and chopped them into manageable pieces.
Motivation could have so easily been squashed if I'd found it impossible to comprehend the material or if I'd felt so overwhelmed that I didn't think success was within my grasp
The best way we can keep ourselves motivated, or to motivate someone else for that matter (Parents... hint, hint), is to break those tasks down into chunks that can be managed easily. This applies whether it's you doing a research paper or teaching your child to clean a bathroom.
