Without deadlines, what really gets you to finish your work? I say just the feeling of having it done, and not stressing about the completing the assignment. Also, it saves you from the anxiety of having zeroes in the gradebook. It helps for future experiences to be on top of things early instead of doing it last second to get it done.

Motivation is a will to keep going, I believe as long as you have that will you can keep going as much as you want. Struggle and hardships are really just in-differences that you choose to acknowledge because you lack the faith in yourself to keep going, so your mind makes excuses to break your will. But if you continue through it and persevere then you'll realize that you could do it all along.

Speaking from experience here; deadlines simply do not motivate me to complete assignments or anything that furthers my education. A short-term, burst like motivation source is seeing a notification that your grade changed on the PowerSchool cell phone app. A long-term source of motivation is the subconscious thought that what I am doing academically will benefit me in some way, regardless of whether it is pleasurable or not. As long as you are taught the correct information, learning will always benefit you or I in some way, shape, or form. There may be times (definitely happens a lot) where you feel like what you are learning is not benefiting you because it does not pertain to your life goals or major in college; this often happens with required high school classes or for college students taking general education courses that do not align with their major. As stated before, the key is to have the subconscious thought that this is benefiting me, even if it doesn't seem remotely probable in real time. Jacob Out **drops mic**

To motivate myself on doing work is to just think about playing soccer for the school. For me to play for the school is to get good grades. If my grades didn't involve in soccer, my grades wouldn't be as good as it is right now.

To motivate myself on school work is focusing on my dreams. I focus on it because I want something great for myself in the future. I don't just focus on it I'm chasing dreams. That's how I motivate myself by me chasing my dreams because if I don't do work I'm basically wouldn't be doing school work because I also need a great education to become someone great!!

I also like this way to motivate yourself because scoring goals in soccer goes as completing my school work. Without scoring goals I wouldn't have good grades.

Even if I have deadlines for a assignment most of the time I turn in stuff late which is a pretty bad habit, but for the most part I TRY MY BEST

I believe what sincerely motivates me to get my work done is based off what subject I'm in. It's not only that, but it's really the feeling you get when you finally complete your work. I'm not usually one to fall behind in my classes, however generally when I fall behind it's because I feel rushed to complete it, which I do understand because of grades and everything. However, the more I feel rushed, the more I feel like I won't have the time to understand anything I'm learning.

Other than the deadlines is just the fact of not worrying about it on the due date. This gets stress off of me and also to have a better future for myself.

I can relate to playing soccer for the school which motivates getting good grades.
I dance three nights a week and if I don’t get things done I know my Mom will take that away. Doing something you love motivates me too.

The way I motivate myself to get things done is to reward myself. A reward may be extra gaming time, tv time, or even money from my Mom. Also, i take dance 3 nights a week and if my stuff doesn’t get done, this reward will be taken away. Depending on the things I have to get done determines the size of the reward.

how do you motivate yourself to get stuff done?

I put my mind to it and try to get my mind in it and try to get it done

I don't know how I find the energy to do my assignments. I think it's because I want to be somebody in life and to get to the spot I want to be in I have to work hard and it all starts here. Maybe if I kill myself working I will be able to someday obtain everything I ever wanted.

yeah, I totally agree with this, sometimes I feel like learning doesn't even matter anymore it's now about grades and passing.

Getting to know new things motivate me. Every time I learn something new I use what I just learned in my everyday life. I think learning new things helps me grow as a person to be a better person or at least try to be a better person. I also like deadlines because it always motivates me to do things at the least minute and get everything done.

The only thing that can motivate me is an interest in the topic at hand. If I don't find a topic interesting I have a hard time getting involved in the topic. It has to be engaging in order for me to enjoy it.

I don't understand why you copy and pasted a tank onto the thread about motivation. It is confusing as what it has to do with the topic. The only thing I can figure is that seeing it on this thread might cause someone such as myself to reply to it, however that is simply a guess.

What motivates me to do this is that I have the urge to finish things that are needed to be done especially when its something I enjoy to do.

To motivate myself I think of my future. I would like to have a good job in my future but to achieve that I need to study hard and try to have good grades on all my classes.
