Looking for some advice and motivation to start early and form a lifelong habit
For those of you who have been reading my posts I got through the 9 exam week and I did just fine. Thanks for the tips and advice. I'm finding now that I am starting my studying earlier and like I said before have scaled my procrastination back alot. But I want to do more, you see I want to be able to study even when I don't feel like exams are that close. For instance, I have two big exams coming up in a month. Now I know I could leave them both till a week or two before and probably do well on both. However, I feel like I really want to start learning material in even deeper and more efficient ways. See I want to be able to set aside a period of studying everyday, and commit two hours to studying. This way in a month I'll have done 60 hours of studying, as opposed to me simply cramming in 20 or 25 hours of studying the two weeks before a block of exams. However, I find that most of the time, when I get to the library and I sit down. One month feels simply too far away, I don't feel motivated because there isn't any immediate pressure from exams. And then I end up surfing the internet or doing something unrelated.
I guess my big goal is to form a lifelong habit of doing a little bit of work everyday regardless about how I feel (lazy, happy, angry, sad, etc, towards the topic or my life). And I want this habit to really stick. Any advice guys on how to work towards this goal?
I welcome all kinds of advice, but I would really appreciate it if people could give me personal stories about how they improved their own habits, etc, and tips advice.
