Manage Your Motivation

Motivation is a driving force behind academic achievement. It propels us to overcome obstacles, stay focused, and achieve our study goals. However, maintaining motivation can be challenging, especially when faced with uninteresting, seemingly irrelevant, or difficult topics.

In this workshop, we will explore effective techniques to manage your motivation and persistence throughout your academic journey. By the end of this workshop, you will:

  • Understand how to find meaning in your studies and maintain a positive attitude to boost your motivation.
  • Set small, achievable learning goals that contribute to your larger academic milestones.
  • Use reward techniques to enhance your motivation.

Remember, motivation isn’t just about getting started; it’s about staying committed even when the going gets tough.
