So I'm a third year university student and I have basically no motivation to do my work anymore.
Like every time I start doing more work, I get bored and stressed and then quit after doing the bare minimum.
I just can't find any motivation at all. I have more motivation to do literally anything else tbh




What are your tips/tricks for getting motivation?
or are you just as stressed and unmotivated as me? lol​

My biggest motivation is that I need to get out of here quickly and get a full-time job to help my family.
If I don't pull my best, I might fail and have to redo these classes, which is a waste of my time and I can't really afford that.

I don't lmfao.

The only thing that keeps me alive in uni is watching criminal documentaries and dramas and thinking ''that will be me''. Literally the only thing that keeps me motivated.

I wait till the deadline is close enough so i don't have any other option but do it :wootonew:

But tbh things changed recently, i'm just tired to do everything so close to the deadline. Create a daily to-do list helped me A LOT.

I find that going to a library and surrounding myself with concentrated people helps because since everyone around you is working, it motivates you to work. Also, I like timing myself when I study and only stopping studying when I hit a certain goal (I use a tree app to do this)

Think about not getting the class credit, having to repeat the class, and thus prolonging your time there. The idea of wasting my own time is what motivates me.

Motivation is fleeting, discipline is key. You can't go around in life doing stuff that needs to be done only if you think the feeling or timing is right. Not everything will be stimulating and it certainly won't be easy, but getting things done when you don't feel like it is what makes the difference.

If not the crippling fear of failing might give you the butt kick you need.

I don't. I do my assigments very last minute (and last month i did almost none of them) because i'm too lazy and then i remember that if I don't I'll get bad grades and fail my degree. It is already my 4th year of university (a bachelor degree in france last 3 years) and I'm studying abroad so I can't afford to fail another year: because then I would have wasted 16000 euros for nothing and 4 years of my life (because if I fail I'm not repeating another year, you have to give up sometimes lmao)
