Procrastination And Low Motivation

I am the queen of procrastination, anything that means not doing work…well I’ll probably be doing it.

In fact, I should be analysing some photos and doing my photography sketchbook right now but instead I’m writing this post, how ironic. When it comes to school/college work, I’ve never been great at giving it my full attention. There always seems to be something else thats more interesting, blogging for example. I don’t find revision fun in any way, and it doesn’t stick in my head. I’m pleased I didn’t pick very academic subjects for my A Levels or else I’d probably be having a break down right about now.

I don’t know why, but I just have such low motivation for college work. I want to do well so bad, but I can’t seem to put the required effort in. I think I’m quite a ‘perfectionist’ as it were, and I hate doing something if I know it can’t be completed properly, so I have to wait until I have all my resources and everything I need to get the task done properly. I can’t use this excuse for revision though, only for my photography sketchbooks haha. Revision I guess, is one of those things that needs to be done but nobody wants to actually do it. You could compare it to an injection, like, who ever wants one of those hahah?! Anyway, I digress, I just find it hard to put effort into something I’m not 100% committed to. 

Although I realise, this is life. Unless you’re super lucky, you’re never going to 100% love your job, or life for that matter. Bad tasks will come your way, and well, you just have to do them. So maybe I should take my own advice here and just suck it up, and get on with it. I dunno, I’m rambling on now. I just always find something better to do, and end up doing more relaxing and less work. I need a huge motivation kick basically haha.

Do you have any tips for staying motivated?
