Who doesn’t want to learn how to improve themselves with tips on motivation, self-control, and productivity? Learning how to better manage yourself and your time is key to living a fulfilling life. Too many of us are wrapped up in our daily lives and unable to relax and spend quality time with family and friends.
But your life doesn’t have to be this way. By improving your motivation, self-control, and productivity, you can turn your life around. Those who implement the tips we have in this video will be able to boost production and increase their free time.
Online education, when done right, is no easier than education provided in a brick and mortar building. However, to be a successful online learner requires a certain skill set. For some, these skills are innate. For others, they may need to be learned and practiced.
We all experience moments of feeling utterly unmotivated. For students, especially those juggling family, work and school obligations, staying motivated to complete schoolwork can be one of the toughest challenges when faced with so many demands for your attention. But don’t get discouraged! Here are a few simple ways to keep motivated, even on your toughest days.
Pick your most productive time
It’s very common nowadays to hear about adults returning to school. With the rise of online learning institutions and adult learning scholarship programs, there are more viable options to study for a degree later in life. We previously noted here on Ed4Online how adult learners are a unique demographic that colleges need to better understand. For instance, they prefer working to their own schedule, come from a wide variety of academic and professional backgrounds, and are heavily motivated to progress.
If you’re anything like me, there are a hundred things vying for your attention online every day. From the moment my eyes open until the moment I log off and head to bed, I’m bombarded with messages, personal emails, work emails, and voice mails. Every day, I try to selectively choose what gets my attention and, particularly when work is crazy, I make sure to build in mini-breaks. During those breaks, I step away from work-think and seek out information that will make me think, laugh, and even cry.
I’m always on the lookout for ways to improve my time-management skills and increase my productivity. In the past I’ve written about how to work smarter, not harder and explored the difference between busyness and productivity. In more than a few blog posts, I have stressed the importance of taking frequent breaks to allow your mind to recharge and improve motivation.
