Stuck in a motivational low

Recommended Posts


For the past few days (except the weekend - probably because I was out exercising all day) I couldn't get myself to do homework or even drawing / playing flute and during readings I've fallen asleep nearly in an instant the moment the professor started to talk. Today I didn't even notice the alarm clock ringing D:

Also I'm starting to think that I'm in the wrong course of studies because I'm spending nearly 4/5 of my school time learning programming and other stuff I don't give a shit about anymore and at the same time don't have the time to finish the projects in the few classes I'm interested in - this will change in a year when we can choose one part to specialise in - then there'll only be one stupid class left.......... No idea what to do anymore... and sometimes it get's so bad that if I have the time to work on the projects I can't get myself to do so and thinking about all the other stuff I have to do later, ending up doing nothing.

I've tried To-Do-Lists, constantly writing during lectures (made it even worse) to not fall asleep.......

Any ideas about how to get myself to do stuff again is appreciated.

This book is small and gives you a ton of info on motivation and setting tasks for yourself.

Mini Habits

I know it's not free, but now that you've unsubscribed from 30 games, you have plenty of money, right?  Well you have $6, anyhow.  That's less than a happy meal.

Pay particular attention to the earlier part of the book where he tells you what things sap you of motivation.  There is a surprising array.
