Well it’s been a good week with a mock test score of 730 but somehow I can feel myself a little low on energy and a little high on laziness. I would like to blame it on the extremely hot weather or on the lack of exercise but even I know those are convenient excuses. So I dug up all the motivational literature I have ever stored and they made for a good read. Now I just have to get to implementing them 🙂
My favourite one is this piece here. It basically debunks the myth of passion and motivation and tells you that you have to be able to put up with the boredom of regular practice. That is all it takes: just keep doing what you’re supposed to be doing every single day no matter how boring it gets. It’s something to think about, and it’s something I’ll apply this week. With less than 2 weeks to go for the test, I’ll need every bit of practice I can get.
Until next time, Cheers!
PS # I had some trouble finding the article I was looking for and now I’m inspired to re-organize all my archives and various storage modes 🙂
