Maintaining motivation throughout the semester can be hard. One thing that can help keep you motivated is thinking about your goals. Start by writing down your long-term goals (think about why you are studying and what you hope to achieve). Next set some short-term goals (for the next few weeks – such as study activities, like doing your course readings or organising your time). Keep a copy of your goals near where you study and cross them off when you achieve them. Keeping a clear focus on your goals will help keep you motivated.   For more on getting motivated see http://owll.massey.ac.nz/study-skills/goals-and-motivation.php...Read more
