Motivation is the emphasis we put on performing certain tasks or activities. Motivation is vital to help us achieve everything we set out to do, especially when studying.
However, motivation fluctuates and can be challenging to maintain. That is why it is important to be strategic and create a clear plan of action.
This is where clear goals come in handy. Consider the following:
- What improvements are you looking for? This can include: knowledge related to your training/ courses, language learning, and more.
- Where do you want to go? Clearly define what you intend to achieve.
Once you are clear about your objectives, it is time to specify what you are going to study in order to get there! Motivation is increased if you find the subjects useful, practical, and engaging. This way you will feel fully motivated by what you have to do. Your attitude will be proactive, you will be more focused and your level of involvement will also be higher.
