Usually by then you will feel that you can write the first sentence, of an answer, report or of notes. Do your homework on a table or desk, but never try to work on the couch or in your bed. You will get bored, and the bed is so soft, you might fall asleep.
Even if you are not like the people who could actually fall asleep, you will get comfortable and distracted. If you have a really hard homework, do easier homework first so that you are not stuck and standing still. If you can help it, don't go to bed before you finish your homework.
What will happen is that you'll say, "Oh, I'll get up early the next morning to finish it. Studies show that during sleep, the brain tends to hold the memories you have right before you go to sleep.
Therefore, if you have to memorize something, try to learn it just before bed. That does not mean you can cram vocabulary words right before you go to sleep; memorize some during the day so that right before sleep you can review most or all of them.
On the break, do not start your reward or anything else that you might be tempted to use as an excuse to not go back to your homework. If you need to use the computer for homework, do not get caught up in interesting ads that could lead to browsing the web and interrupting your work. If you can, try using a blocker to block these things and try not to get tempted.
If you are having trouble getting through a certain assignment and it takes a long time, temporarily switch to another assignment.
Don't get really stressed about not being able to do homework. There's plenty of help around - the Internet, parents, friends, etc. If all else fails, you can go into school early and ask your teacher to explain the work to you.
Start with your notes or texts in front of you, don't do it alone, not guessing how to get solutions, use the notes you have from class. Avoid procrastinating that may affect your plans for the rest of the day. Say you start thinking, "Oh, I'll do it tonight" then look at your plans, and you would have something there, "Nope, my favorite show is on. Do the rest of your homework right after arriving at home. You are still in the school learning mode, and it will be easier to remember all you have learned.
Then, you will have the rest of the day and evening free, without having to even think of school, until the next day. Write down your assignment and write the time you started it.
When you finish, write down the time again. Make sure not to procrastinate in-between! Do this for all your assignments and you will probably see that it doesn't take as long to do homework as you thought. Record your breaks too! Every time you take a break, write down the start and end time. Knowing you are being timed may motivate you to do your homework faster.
Don't get really worried! Next week you'll be wondering 'why ever did I get so worked up about it? Change your perspective so you can, essentially, reach back into the past to change what's going on in life now. Write down motivational suggestions that work for you, to start homework or assessments. If you're going through a list of motivational techniques, such as these, write down all of the techniques that make you go "hmmm, that actually might work".
By doing this, next time you can look at your own list that is you-specific. You will find that you get your work started faster, and will feel more in control. Music may often help you concentrate; though try to avoid music with lyrics or very complex melodic progressions, as they may cause you to think more about the music than your homework.
Certain classical music and some jazz are good for listening to while doing homework. Trance is the best style of music for studying; many people find studying to trance music very easily because most trance music is pure instrumental. Make time for breakfast and lunch.
It does play a role in your ability to think. Get inspired to do it! Make colorful charts, and diagrams to help speed up this process. If you choose to listen to music, be aware that studies show you perform best on a test when the conditions, light, noise, etc. If you are an extreme procrastinator, you might try some "structured procrastination".
As the suggestion above says, do the easy homework before doing the hard homework, however not just to give yourself a sense of accomplishment, but also to avoid doing the big stuff. When it comes to the big stuff, find another larger task to avoid, like annoying house chores, to put off in order to do this homework, instead.
Some people use 'study drugs' in order to stay awake, hoping to stay focused. While this may be an effective way to avoid sleep, be aware that using drugs in this manner may cause unwanted side effects, such as mild depression, anxiety, insomnia, etc. Since psychotropic drugs work differently for different people, this is not an effective way to study. Make sure you get a good nights sleep the night before.
You will be able to work better, if you are not tired. If there is something you don't understand, write down a specific question, or mark the page in your book. Then you can ask your teacher for detailed help. The teacher will start explaining too basically or too advanced, and not help you this frustrates both you and the teacher. So instead, say exactly what you need to get cleared up.
If you do homework with a friend, it's easy to get off subject and not do work in time. Of course, it's perfectly fine to be part of a study group, if you know you can all focus. It's easier to recall something, if you remembered it under a similar environment, known as state-dependent learning.
That's why it is important to study at a table and with proper lighting instead of reading on your bed, for example. Try reading the homework out loud as you do it. Read the textbook as many times as possible before you start your homework. This way you won't waste time flipping pages to find the answer or going online and getting distracted. Once you know the keywords you can make up the answer on your own.
This way you learn what you just wrote down as homework. Try and choose a certain day to get all of your tasks done.
Sunday is usually best. You will then have the rest of the week homework free until the following Sunday. If you get distracted easily, just dance it or jump it out! Write or type down everything you have for homework. As you do your homework, delete, check or cross out the homework you completed. Add how long each one will take so you can see what you have left and how much time left until you finish.
It will help you stay organized and on task for motivation. If you choose to listen to music, listen to classical music, video game music, or music where the lyrics are in a language you don't understand. Make sure it's at a low volume. Listening to words you understand can make it harder to concentrate on what you want to write.
Both classical and video game music can help with most people. Warnings If waking up early to study is what you prefer yes, there are people who do ensure you go to bed early. Do not sleep late and wake up early even if you can. This is going to affect your body negatively in the long run. Make sure to eat healthy, small snacks for better brain function not to be drowsy. Start going through the motions of making progress. These are the toughest to find motivation for.
What are the consequences of not doing it? Can you live with the consequences? Is there any way to not do this thing? Then, if you still conclude that this thing absolutely has to get done, focus on simply getting past it.

In the comments below, share your other favorite motivation hacks and tell me what this post helped you achieve. Learn how to set goals that actually stick! Every week we talk with entrepreneurs. We talk about successes and failures. We spend time with complete newbies, seasoned veterans, and everything in between.
One topic that comes up over and over again with both groups is mistakes made in starting businesses. Newbies love to learn about mistakes so they can avoid them. Veterans love to talk about what they wish they had known when starting out. These conversations have been fascinating , so we compiled a list of the 10 mistakes we hear most often into a nifty lil' guide. Give it a share:. Thanks for helping pave a way to a better path for many people.
No time for a long, drawn out comment. Your final part particularly attracts my attention as I am personally passionate about deeging really deep to uncover ALL the roots of obstacles holding me back and then work dilligently on removing them…… for ever: I would block the time in my diary that I will need to finish the task at least a week in advance.
This way I would prepare myself psychologically for it e. This somehow manages to take the edge of my dislike and turns the activity into a humorous one. And things get done: In addition to the above, I sit down, remember and write down examples of a few similar times when I completed things I disliked and was satisfied with the result.
This I look at daily during the week of psyching myself up for the task. This second method also serves another purpose: And last but not least, I also use many NLP techniques working with my submodalities to reduce the effects my demotivating states have on me — and they work a charm!
Stop crying and create what you want!! I will be sharing this post with others. The hardest part is just starting. If the weather is poor, then simply blasting some pumping music and jumping around the room for a few minutes does wonders. Damn, as always, just what I needed to hear at the right time as I put off getting things done yet another day. As usual, you are reading my mind and millions of others! Thanks for the virtual kick in the ass!
Great stuff Corbett, it definitely grabs you by the lapels and moves you forward. But I had to let you know how powerful this was and thank you! Thanks Nathalie, I hope you get hundreds of awesome things done today. Good of done without the swearing but the rest was over the top. I did have to give myself a pep talk this morning.
The video got my juices flowing too and I just hope everyone that whines can take a look at this and think about it before doing it again. Watching him on video is insane- he is one jacked up man. Either way, I love him and you rock for posting this. Everyone should read it. Exactly what I needed today. It does get easier, and it is all worth it, BUT you will question whether you should keep going dozens of times before you make it.
Corbett dude, I seriously appreciate every single fucking post you have put up here. All I can say is thanks for being awesome and a serious fucking motivator. Thanks for the kick in the pants. You used almost as much profanity as all my favorite workout songs. I use the same playlist that got me from being a couch potato to a half-marathon runner to get my juices flowing for a work project.
Hmm I have to respectfully disagree — if you want to procrastinate complete steps , if you want to actually get shit done skip to step Consider it shared, after I have done my work and logged back into my social network sites ;.
Gary Vee is the man motivating me the most lately. He is the BOMB and has made hustle the word of the year for us!!
Awesome kick in the butt. Gonna cut and paste this above my desk! Glad you got in 6. God bless you, man, for this unbelievable post. WOW, I feel so fuc…ing motivated! I was already feeling ultra-motivated, but I read this anyway just because I like getting punched in the face with awesomeness: I read the post, watched the video, knocked out a chapter of your Start a Blog that Matters course, and came back again for another motivational kickstart!
To start doing something is the hardest part of the task. This reminds me of how my high school soccer coach used to pump us up to crush the competition! You were just a lot more eloquent…. I drink water from a bottle I leave in my room while reading some instructions for the day in my mirror http: Then I read my goals that I have in my chalk board: At night I take 30 min to disconnect with everything and I meditate to remember the things that I have to do the next day, but most importantly, the attitude that I have to keep during the day and when doing the challenges, how do I have to react when feeling weak and what do I have to do in difficult moments much like shadow boxing.
Corbett I really need this right now. Thank you so much. I have been boxing with problems and worries lately. This is definitely a good article to push me back to the working phase.
I did most of the activity you listed. Matter of fact, I am listening to my favorite playlist right now. Thanks for the words of inspiration. I have been planning for a while to stand up while working and I will try this today, even if I have some back problems, but I will see how it goes. I like your style ;. Standing whilst working is my favourite tip! This absolutely frickin rocked dude. This is totally the way to get pumped up and get productively. Keep on keeping it real!! Oh my fu en god!!
This post is amazing.. I am contemplating a new venture and this is all the motivation I need.. One of these posts you want to write on a piece of paper and do a copy for all people you care about.
Thank you so much Corbett. This is Melody from China. I wanna say thank you for posting this. Love the Lost bomb. It is so easy to get distracted and fall into living mediocrely because it takes less effort. Thanks for this very encouraging blog post. I needed to read this today. Looking forward to reading more of your stuff. Putting this sucker in my favs to pull up whenever I need a good, old-fashioned kick in the ass.
I personally use the Pomodoro technique and it helps me get started. I also find automation helps get rid of the procrastination a fair bit. Being so true to yourself and your vision has clearly allowed others to shine as well. I got to about point 7 and am waiting for the espresso machine to warm up for my shot. I gues down weeks are not the best time to give up the one coffee a day habit.
I love coffee smell and the luxury of the little ritual. I had barely opened your page. But today is one of those days and your opening line somehow got me. In case you wonder. If you have internal or external voices telling you that you cannot do something, the best way to shut them up it to just fucking do it!! That guy is an energy bomb and he always gets to motivate me. All in one day! I feel a huge weight lifted off my shoulders.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you for yelling and swearing at me. It was exactly what I needed! It made me smile and actually wanna do something. Funny cz it represents pure reality. Damn it hit me! I am lazy and need motivation. And so I stumble in to this page at the break point of the term, when the stress and tiredness and the almost impossible urge to whine is floating in the air of my studio.
Hey, high school student here. Thanks for the help: Thank you and I am going to share it on our FB page. This was absolutely tremendous and I loved it. I feel like my work and life has been all over the place, but after reading your post and listening to Gary it is so clear…focus on what you love and work your ass off. It is straight to the point……….. I like to play music when I work too.
It motivates me and gets me in the mood to get more done. Hey, I must say that this is something really motivating. I am myself a blogger who writes on making yourself for better and happy life.
I have never read a post with such enthusiasm. Although I would suggest you to create a podcast or an audio file on this topic. It made me to write another post on motivation and developing interest in ourselves. Language is rough, but I guess that is essence of this post. I wrote to developing positive attitude if you may wanna check at http: Loving this post so much that after reading it quite a few times myself, I decided I just needed to share the looooove!
Good Monday morning kick up the… for me. I do the exact same thing when I need motivation, I turn off everything and put on my favorite playlist. It is a great way to get some work done. Do the hard stuff first! It is best to take a break when you know what to do next, not every time you get frustrated.
I was scouting around for a one liner or two, printable, to go up on my cupboard to motivate the kids….. And instead you motivated ME!! Maybe my music will rival that of my teen-kids!! Hilarious because it is so true!
This totally cracked me up and also put a foot in it…my behind that is…Thanks, Corbett! I have no idea how to thank you! Fuck to the yeah! Late night dicking around on Stumble Upon is made of win! Thanks for this post man. I just gotta turn off my internet while doing something that has to be done. I think this post helps push people out of that warm bed. After a few days it will be programmed into your brains. So I looked here.
Motivation should come from our vision and goals in life. Great encouragement really to just do it and not procrastinate. Thank you so much for the passion and energy you put into this post. It has changed my life, not exaggerating at all. I give this link to my friends when they start whining about how tired and unmotivated they are. This is just what I needed. Found your post when searching questions about FB ads and this post title caught my eye.
Thanks for the lift! I so needed this — after doing nothing productive all day, i found this and suddenly my chewing gum became less interesting! Thank you for honest words and shove in the right direction. Now for the doing …. Thanks to this site, I had a productive sprint that brought me nearly to the end of a software contract that has dragged on far too long with so many damn contradictory changes in the product specification that I was almost ready to throw in the towel and lose money.
Look at everything from above. Thank you so much! I sometimes slip due to PTSD stress from marine corps combat and even the smallest of tasks can sometimes be overwhelming.
Today was one of those days… I motivated myself up enough to look on the web for motivation and cans across your post.. By the way the cursing did not in any way affect the positivity in your post. This is a very, very intelligent guy. He also has more energy if he worked 15 hr days for 7 yrs!!! Im sorry to say, most of us cannot replicate what he did. Thats the problem-There are soooo many reasons.
What if his passion was fruit loops instead of wine? Would he ever in yrs be offered a tv show for it. Yet this guy is worth listening to. As far as building brand equity, some of us arent creative enough to think of a name for a slice of Pizza let alone a whole company model. And what about shy people? Are they just f-cked from the beginning or should they just do another Anthony Robbins firewalk? Im just playing devils advocate here guys.
I have a great wife, family and friends. My income is probably slightly below the wage of an average person. School never meant much to me. I never aimed for A grades; I was happy with C grades. My employed life has been the same. But up until recently, something has changed. And it makes me want much more than what I have right now. In my new-found quest to succeed, I need constant reminders of where I want to be. Thank you for the words of motivation.
I will be somebody. It may not be tomorrow. It may not be in my current profession. Today is your someday, Jason! Obstacles are what you see when you take your eyes off your goal. So stay focused and strong. Sending you positive vibes. This is by far the best motivational article I have ever read in my entire life. I got so much done yesterday just because of this article.
LMAO very very funny. This is the first article on motivation that I was motivated in reading all the way through. Thank you for that. But reading this post again when I hit that snag will definitely be the kick in the arse that I need! Brutally honest and motivating. Thanks for the great read! The problem really is that motivation just stays for that moment or for say an hour….
I need to get shit done right now. How come no one on the internet understands this. I know this feeling.. Only thing that works for me is to break the task into TINY pieces and find something fun that I really want to do, that can also be broken into tiny pieces. Every tiny goal accomplished in the task add one slide to my talk, write a single paragraph of this document, whatever I get to do a tiny bit of the fun thing 5 moves in this turn based game, one page of what I was reading, etc.
I had this feeling to but other people cant help with your problems you have to help yourself practice means better so if you I mean you practice on doing something you have to do then you will be successful in life. I have to grasp for any small glimmer of value to posts like this though because I desperately need to make moves. I find every excuse not to do it, create fake problems where there are none to lose myself in the solution rather than just biting the bullet.
Why should I do all of these things if I could just not do them and still be in about the same position as before! I just feel that internet and reading posts sometimes, keeps one in the loop, instead taking action. You shift from one post to another, just to look for motivation, and 2 hrs are gone.!! Its important to take action, even when you are not motivated!
I think it was pretty good, and pretty entertaining. That part about writing the three points down is pretty motivating. Sweetheart, if you were motivated in the first place, why come here? After countless failed attempts to take over the world with the help of my assistant Pinky, I was feeling morose but thanks to this post i realised that every failure is a step closer to success and that one day the world will bow down to my genius.
Allow me to express my gratitude human. There are a lot of posts on motivation scattered all over the internet, but the way in which this was presented really got me going. Thanks a lot, and keep up the good work! This post helped me feel more assured. Do it and do it and do it. I be back when I make a lot of money. I want to make so much that would make me SICK! I need my writer to do my math homework assignment, too. She found the errors in my work and helped me do my programming homework, and got it all corrected — this is my best grade ever in class!
Thanks that you agreed to do my physics assignment overnight. I was stunned when I discovered I had one and even more surprised when you promised to do my physics assignment so quickly. Thanks again" - Kile G.
