How To Do My Homework Without Proper Motivation
Assignments that are given during school hours are generally difficult to ignore. Unless your school is in a very sorry state, your teacher will most likely be around to put your focus back to the task at hand if you get caught up with something else. At home, the whole game changes. You can find infinite better uses for your time and if you do not really enjoy academics, you may lack motivation. Here are a few tips to help you get homework done anyway:
- Get others to help
- Shame yourself
- Reward yourself
- Remove yourself from distraction
If there are other people around every time you attempt your assignments they can help you just as your teacher would. As you start to try to do other things, they can remind you of what you are really supposed to be doing. This method is only for friends who are all equally interested in academic success. If anyone in your group is even less focused than you are they could end up sabotaging everything.
There are programs that allow you to have a built in punishment if you fail at achieving a stated goal. You can sign up to one and if you are unable to finish your assignments and furnished appropriate proof, the app will release a previously supplied embarrassing photo or fact to your social media contacts. This works best of you have a good reputation that you wish to uphold.
On the opposite side, you could promise yourself a treat if you finish all of your assignments on time. This also requires extreme will power. If you know you will give yourself the thing you want no matter what, your homework may as well not get completed. You will need to be capable of looking at whatever you want but not giving in to it unless it has been fairly earned.
If you realize that your lack of motivation is caused by having too many other option, remove as many attractive distractions as possible. Turn off the TV, close all of your social media apps and jut focus on the task at hand. This will be difficult if you are not accustomed to sitting in silence so consider leaving some music on. If the music distracts you then it too has to go. If there are no places at home that leave you completely without distractions, try a library.
