    Battling Senioritis

    So here I am in my final semester of college . . . assuming I pass my courses.

    I'm taking three difficult computer science courses all at once and here I am reading Bullshido when I should be in class.

    I know it might sound counterintuitive, but I plan on starting regular training again later this week (due to damnable car problems). I think this will actually help get me back in line as I tend to work harder in every facet of my life when I am training regularly.

    How do you deal with this type of situation? How do you get yourself motivated?

      Porn, and if I am lucky, MA porn !!!

      Seriously for a moment,
      Motivation is the core to training and to HOW we train.
      You need to find that within you.
      Set clear and defined ( and realistic)goals.
      Meet them.

        Getting married and having children cured me of senioritis. I only recommend this course of action in very extreme cases.
        People of integrity expect to be believed. When they're not, they let time prove them right.

          It's easy for me to get motivated to train.

          It's hard for me to get motivated to be a good college student.

          But yes, creating a list on paper of things to accomplish might help.

            Interesting contribution. I will say that the situation is certainly not this extreme (yet).

              Fine something in school that inspires you the same way your training does. For me, it was the decision to join law enforcement.

                Putting the first foot forward seems to be the trick for me. Most of my procastinations in college were mental blocks, spending wasted time reasoning how to put things off and how to get away with it. I notice these days I just don't bother thinking about the 'boredom' factor; instead, just get moving.

                Once in awhile I still catch myself thinking I should go do weights or not; when that happens, I just get going because I refuse to put it off. With karate, as with most things I love, procastination is seldom a problem.

                Drink two cans of "Rockstar energy drink" and just go at it. You might not be able to focus, but you'll be doing something :D

                I love MA. Unlike many things in life, you get what you put in.

                  This is likely my major problem, actually.

                  I'm in kind of a slump. I'm on my way to the REAL WORLD now where I will have to get a job I probably won't enjoy (due to lack of industry work experience) and hours that will cut down on my training.

                    A friend of mine said that, when ever he put on his gi and tied his belt, he got motivated, as if the very act of putting on his uniform told him "its time to go to work".

                      I find zen meditation is helpful in focusing your mental energy on something you need to do.

                        I studied a little bit of Zen. Then I tried meditating, got frustrated, and quit.

                        Even went to a "zen center".

                          Any job that is somewhat respectable will probably cut down on training hours significantly. Deal with it. :rolleyes:

                            You could always look at the negative side (i.e. if you don't get studying, you'll have to repeat those classes again).

                              I wish I could give you some advice, but you know me and, let's face it, I'm the
                              last person who should be giving advice on self motivation.
