MOTIVATION

LAZINESS

Submitted by George

During my second week of classes I hit a road block. I found every possible way to procrastinate and made every possible excuse to hold off doing my assigned readings and writings. Then I would find myself doing last minute work. I was reminded of college, where I should be studying and trying my best but, I couldn’t find inspiration and no motivation to do work I didn’t care about. Luckily I was able to push myself and finish everything the day before. I don't know if it was as good as it could have been if I hadn't rushed, but I stick by my belief that I work better under pressure. Then again, that might just be another excuse.
As the end of my third week approaches I find myself in another position of procrastination. I knew in the back of my head that I wouldn’t do the work but I kept telling myself that I needed to at least pass the course. It’s not that I’m lazy it’s just that I couldn’t find a reason to do the work. I was also focused on non-school related activities like playing the bass guitar, and seeing my friends play very well it motivated me to try hard. As days go by I begin to focus on the two out of three courses and eventually fail the one course I gave up on. After this incident I looked back at my attitude and understood that I had to feel something with the work I do or else I will lose interest. It’s difficult to stay motivated and I still haven’t found my inspiration to keep me motivated.
