The motivation just isnt there anymore...... Hi all, I have a problem. I dont feel that my motive for studying is as strong as it use to be. When I started my 1st year in engineering, it wasnt that hard for me to pick up a physics book and read. Now (in second year) I'm like "yea, mayb tomorrow. " But tomorrow never really comes. If it does, it doesnt come at full blow. I'm not really goofing off or anything of that sort. I still study to past tests, and I get good grades. But thats all, I just study to pass. Before it was the "relentless pursuit of knowledge." Now I just study to get by. Thats just not the way it works, you have to go beyond the classroom notes. I think my problem is that I'm not motivated enough. How do you guys stay motivated? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
