How to deal with feeling of not wanting to learn anything?

In summary, the latest is that the dataset for employee promotion prediction was wrong, so they decided to go with a different project. They like working with LSTM and CNN models, and think that the main point still applies - find something that makes you smile or get excited to do and the learning will follow.

IDK what is this feeling. Since my exams were over about 10 days ago, I have been feeling like this tbh...I did rest as well. Now the next thing to be studied is big data where I need to study from textual content and there is no videos for it. So I know that is also one reasons for my lack of starting to study...IDK..I have been feeling this since a long time. How do I fix this feeling?

Hi again. Like I've said in other posts I think you don't seem to have a passion project or something that excites you to build/study/learn. If you can find something that sounds just "cool" to do, then learning the topics needed to accomplish will become tools you need to do so. It's like exercising on a treadmill versus playing a fun sport. Sometimes when I'm playing a sport like tennis or basketball, I forget I'm exercising. Same idea here.

What is the latest with your machine learning project?

the dataset for employee promotion prediction was wrong. so we decided to go with image caption generator...using lstm and cnn (deep learning)...

But do you like that idea? Does it make you excited?

I work with LSTM and CNN models. Each of those is something you could study for years. It's not just like learning a few rules. I think my main point still applies - find something that makes you smile or get excited to do and the learning will follow.

1. How common is it to experience a lack of motivation to learn?

It is not uncommon to experience a lack of motivation to learn, especially when facing difficult or uninteresting material. It is a natural response to feeling overwhelmed or disengaged.

2. What are some potential causes for not wanting to learn?

There can be a variety of reasons for not wanting to learn, such as feeling burnt out, lacking interest in the subject, or struggling with a learning disability. It is important to identify the root cause in order to address it effectively.

3. How can I overcome the feeling of not wanting to learn?

One approach is to break down the material into smaller, manageable chunks and set achievable goals. Additionally, finding a study partner or seeking help from a teacher or tutor can provide motivation and support. It may also be helpful to find ways to make the material more engaging, such as through hands-on activities or real-life examples.

4. Is it okay to take a break from learning if I am feeling unmotivated?

Yes, it is important to listen to your body and mind and take breaks when needed. However, it is also important to set a specific time frame for the break and have a plan for returning to learning afterwards. This can help prevent a prolonged period of disengagement.

5. When should I seek professional help for my lack of motivation to learn?

If the lack of motivation is significantly impacting your academic or personal life, it may be beneficial to seek professional help. A therapist or counselor can help identify underlying issues and provide strategies for overcoming them. Additionally, seeking help from a learning specialist or tutor can also be beneficial in addressing any learning difficulties that may be contributing to the lack of motivation.
