PMA chronicles– you are the driver
I n my study group i saw this whole rollercoaster of feelings throughout the day.
9AM- 12PM Determined/positive were gonna do this baby!
12pm owards fluctuating between- positive and confusion and then a whole mix
But by the evening we were so demotivated feeling like we coudlnt write anything cos our brain wasnt taking anything in. I have been reading for a couple of days but i know my friend has been working so hard almost every single day since we got this and i could just see her telling herself that she couldnt do this. Wheras from the outside I could clearly see she would write such an amazing piece of work once she let herself.
But the problem is we demotivateourselves. We are the ones who have the power to do it or we dont.
on the other hand anotehr friend of mine has already finished the whole PMA and when i asked her how she told me taht all it takes is sitting down and doing it. she set that 40 hour target and promised herself she would do it all within that time and she did.
Now the thing i learnt from this was that it has nothing to do with researching the right things or finding some sort of trick to get things done faster. All it takes is yourself. if like me, you are telling yourself no you cant do this you ae not ready to write yet cos you dont know anything. then thats exactly what is going to happen. but if you just tell yourself you can then you will!
So we told ourselves tha we are not gonna let this control us! we are going to focus and just do it! like Nike says!
