How do you keep yourself consistent?





zacky
In General, regardless of behind reason, what keeps you motivate and consistent at any certainty to your goals?
deanhills
Passion. If I really want something I'll work at it consistently. Also stubbornness sometimes. Difficulty to let go once I've got my mind on something, particularly on computer related things. Have to fix it no matter what.
standready
Motivation, I agree with Dean.
Certainty? Everything is subject to change in life.
zacky
Indeed, that's brilliant answer from dean. Actually that's I think what I am looking for, a priceless solution that keeps me in shape regardless of trials may come down the road while achieving my goals.

Like Dean said, passion is the best tool for consistency. It still doesn't guarantee 100% consistency for most people, I think. No matter how much we love something, when we poured our heart and soul into training for a competition, for example, and we don't even finish third, frustration will take over and for the time being the idea of practicing is enough to want to puke and the energy and motivation internal silo needs to be refilled before we can go on Very Happy

Nothing beats it though! Spending a lot of time on doing something when we don't really love it is like hitting a brickwall with head, it's toxic.

One other thing that works though is just doing something endlessly until it becomes second nature and we don't think about it. It works best with stuff that can be at least partly "automated" and doesn't work that well with stuff that requires creativity - as being creative without being passionate about something probably takes twice more energy to get the same result.

Wow, deep, philosophical question, difficult to discuss. But it's a good one.

What keep me going on? Not exactly the same thing as Deanhills but close: instead of passion, I like the thrill about being close to finish a large project. And life is composed of projects.

I need courage, thrill and motivation for completing complex projects.

I need to learn CSS, php, javascript and SQL. But I love Pascal.

So I learn Pascal and then see what is the equivalent on these other languages.

I get my motivation from Pascal which flows over to CSS, php, javascript and SQL.

I tried when I was smaller to make sure that I had good discipline in order to finsih my homework and tings like that. I feel a lot of that has transferred over now that I'm no longer that young, but I still have things to do. Throughout college, I think it was an exercise in those four years to be training my work ethic and my discipline to finish the jobs that I set out to do. Because to me college isn't just about learning the subjects that you are in class for, but to learn about the study habits and other mental things you can learn in order to keep yourself ready for your future jobs. You don't necessary remember all the things you learn in college or university, but you will remember how to study hard and how to retain information, skills that will transfer over when you enter the real world and exit the world of schooling.

The motivation side of things is just about what you like to do and why you want to do it. It changes depending on the task you are trying to accomplish. Some would be motivated by what they are doing because it interests them, but other times they want to do it to ensure they have a good job. Different people have different motivations for different things they do.

Look, albeit a fancy example, I got what you said. CSS, PHP, JavaScript and SQL are contemporary and widely used languages, but CSS and HTML are not proper programming languages. SQL is a database administration language. So your approach might be right: when learning another (speaking) language, you can do nothing but to compare with your native language. Go try learning Portuguese without side-viewing it with English.

The same could apply for the concepts in a programing language: this is the Significant Learning, a Learning concept brought to us by psychologists David Ausubel and Joseph Donald Novak. Learn how to learn! Try taking a look in here/

I do not keep myself consistent to most goals, but for the ones where I do keep my consistency, it is mostly out of sheer determination and remembering the reason for my actions. For example, when I go to the gym and I am exercising, I feel as if I needed to stop because I am tired and demotivated. However, I look back to the reason why I joined the gym, my physical inaptitude, and I keep doing what I am doing because the reason is still valid; I still need it.

And when I am pursuing something that requires some effort, I just think about what I want, and every time that I want to stop, I ask myself "would I rather lose it than make the effort?" and as long as the answer is no, which is often, I keep doing what I need to do to achieve my purpose.

Friends.

Well, earlier i used to be carefree, no motivation for anything, no aim, but I realized motivation for something comes from willingness , If you wake up everyday with a feeling that you have to do something great and awesome, let it be the same thing everyday, but that mindset is necessary, then only you will get the passion for things to do. Cool (my opinion and experience)

Easy answer: Stop to refuse help from Your friends.
Our experience is
since 1,985
people who like to say the whole day You are stupid Im clever but You dont understand
those people are sa.
The lose their jobs and darlings.


So advice

Stop hitting helping hands and You ll be happy healthy and rich.




And question: Is is good to say "You are astupid brother" does those sentences really did improve situations?

What keeps me motivated? The same thing which brought the motivation from the start. For projects that might be something like wanting to improve my skills, or it might be some kind of external force pushing a situation onto me. For me it's either "be motivated" or "be depressed" so I go with the one that is easier on my health.

What keeps me on track? That's easy, goals, writing everything down, not trying to do everything on my own, talking about all of the problems I face.

You are right.
Learning is fun.

I am basically a showoff... so I learn and keep motivated just for be able to show off...

And as a bonus I maybe can do a Muhammad Ali stunt.... Sayin he is the greatest Before the show and then he really is at the end.

This is the advantage of humans who live in a relationship. You come home, insulted by the boss. You tell it to Your darling and she is giving You an advice/decionsuggest: Fight or let it go. Try it.

Basically Motivation, If you don't have that than you won't accomplish anything. Also having good friends that courage you to not give up when things are getting hard in your life.

So Motivation and Encouragement.

Passion and positivity to do a work makes me consistent.

All you need is

  2. lots of patience
  3. good health condition

Motivation is essential to keep me going.
Like running 2 times 6 km per week. It makes it easy for me to maintain my weight, that's sufficient motivation for me.
loveandormoney
Sports are very good for the brain. Enjoy it. Yoga too.
sailor69
For me, meditation and prayer, and silence when I can get it.

As a lifestyle choice, it is difficult sometimes. I forget, or my circumstances get in the way, such as family responsibilities. That's okay. I just have to keep at it.

Passion, for a reason, definitely helps.

I think that's my main problem. I cannot be consistent. If I start something, I'm at it while I'm interested, and when I'm not, I just cannot force myself to do it. It has happened to everything I've tried. Friends, I've abandoned them. Coding in a certain language, I let it go and start programming in another language. Any project I start, I work at it for a few days, maybe a few months, and then the interest fades and I'm in another project, another mindset.

I should be consistent at least with two things: my studies and my job. I abandoned my studies almost thoroughly and "plan" every day to go back to it, but I'm just not interested. Too many things to do. And my job, well, when I need money I work, when I don't, I can spend a whole month or two programming, writing, reading or developing some strange hobby like drawing, taking pictures, editing images, etc...

I remember not long ago someone said he admires me because I know so much about many things. He said he wanted to be like me. But it's too unsatisfying to live like this. I just can't accomplish anything because my interests just change. I don't have any big goal, just to enjoy. I'm an eternal scrupulous hedonist.

On the plus side @ratanegra, people say that one can only be genuine and real if one lived within the moment. For me if one pushes oneself to do something in spite of not liking it, one's no longer living in one's own moment. I do get it with collateral damage though. Like if one wanted to write a book after one has brainstormed it, one will need to be consistent to finish it.
