What is procrastination? How to set goals? How to study effectively and with pleasure?
Procrastination is the substitution of important things for some less important ones, while giving an understandable result. For example, at the moment when you need to pass a test, you start washing dishes, knitting socks, reading the news. That is, you do things that you can not do now, instead of what you need to do.
Causes of procrastination:
- There is no goal. You don’t see the benefit in what needs to be done.
- There is no understanding of what the first step is to do. Because of this, it is difficult to get to work.
- Physical fatigue and overload. It is very important to maintain a balance of work, study and rest.
The most important thing is to set a goal for yourself exactly. It helps to focus on the main thing and fills with energy.
How to formulate a goal?
Ask yourself the question“ “I want to study this so that….?”
List why you need this goal. List all possible options and the one that will resonate in your heart the most and will be the true reason and impetus to move forward and develop. And remember that during the learning process, your goal and focus of attention may change.
What are your stereotypes about learning?
- I’m a humanitarian and I can’t understand the analysis.
- if it’s easy for me, then I’m doing something wrong.
- I have no talent for this business, I need to do it right the first time.
- it’s bad to make mistakes.
- it doesn’t matter how convenient it is for me, the main thing is to do it.
Start noticing these stereotypes for yourself and try to figure out where they come from. Because they are the ones that prevent you from getting more.
