COVID-19 has brought about an uncertainty which has affected the minds of all, especially the students. Not knowing what the future holds for us is a scary feeling. However, if you think about this while you have your study book in your hand; it won’t be helpful to your growth at all. You might be sitting for 10-12 hours but what matters the most is the productivity in those hours. Input is important for any work but output is much more important. For instance, if a laborer is working day and night but is unable to produce efficient result or the desired result, there must be a reason behind the ineffective result. Similarly, you need to understand the reason behind your lack of concentration. You need to understand the triggers that set off unwanted thoughts. Let’s begin!
There may be days when you are not able to study anything or keep up with the concentration and there maybe days when you’re doing just great. What is the reason behind this inconsistency? What are the reasons behind your distraction?
Distraction from Mobile phones and digital media:-
Digital media, your so-called ‘entertainer’ and your mobile phones have always been an obstacle in your concentration level but we never realized. You may think of studying or at least opening your books but instead you take your mobile and surf your social media. In current scenario, the number of followers increased or decreased on your social media matters more to the youngsters than the time they have wasted. It’s not that we don’t realize the deleterious effect of digital noise on our productivity. We do. Yet, we don’t escape. Use your electronic gadgets in an effective way, watch online classes, and learn something new. At Unique Academy for Commerce, we have an app for online coaching. This way, the students can learn from their phones.
Another big problem among youngsters is multi-tasking. They try to do each and every work at same time, which is scientifically proven not to be effective. This is human tendency, we keep on procrastinating our work and in the end, we pile up everything and increase our burden.
It is not possible to concentrate on more than one task at a time. If we keep on doing this, we are simply switching between different tasks and we could never match our energy level and focus in any of the tasks. This slows down the efficiency. Remember, social media and other pleasurable distractions won’t pay your bills. Meaningful work will.
Lack of Motivation:-
Lack of motivation. Lack of interest. Lack of purpose. Call it whatever you want to, but it’s the single biggest and pivotal factor behind most distractions. You don’t procrastinate when you’ve to play video games. You’re already on to these things big time on your own because they interest you. And when it comes to things that matter to your academic and professional future, it’s the opposite. You’re disinterested. That’s the fundamental reason why you get distracted so easily.
Above, we discussed few reasons of distraction, now let’s discuss about the various things that we can do to level up our mental stamina:
- GET ORGANISED:–
Being organized means try to make a ‘to do’ list and complete your work according to that schedule. Match the difficulty of the task with your own ability, and then only assign yourself daily targets to be completed. Discipline plays a very important role, be it while studying, managing work or in life. Juggling multiple works and subjects can be stressful. You can help organize your deadlines and manage your time more efficiently with a proper schedule. Figure out when you’re most productive and set time aside for homework and activities. Professional courses like CA/CS require discipline as well as proper follow up to proceed, for that you may start with online classes with best faculty of India.
- DIVIDE VAST SUBJECTS / CONCEPTS:-
Defeat procrastination by breaking a vast subject or concept into small topics. It’s easier to motivate yourself to do something in smaller tasks rather than jumping into a huge one. If you’re having a difficult time studying or getting work done, break up your time effectively. Try giving yourself a 10-minute break for every 45-50 minutes of work you do. There are various online video lectures for CS Students available through which they can learn each and every concept and subject, topic-wise.
- BEST ENVIRONMENT:-
The atmosphere in which you study and the aura around you matters the most while concentrating on your course. Choose the environment which is suitable to you and study through online lectures which will create an atmosphere of learning. Some students work best with a little background noise, while others need complete silence. Get to know your work style and the type of atmosphere you prefer. Try a few different spaces and see how each study session works out.
- DISTRACT YOURSELF TO NOT GET DISTRACTED:-
Don’t give up on distractions, because you can’t. You only need to bunch them together instead of spreading them through the day especially during your productive sessions. So, schedule distractions. After you’ve put in few sessions of undistracted work, go and satisfy your urge to surf the internet, text, and chat. If you’re constantly doing self-study, you may take a break and go and watch CS online classes, it will definitely reap some productive fruit.
To sum up, we can conclude that somewhere our social media and mobile phones are a great distraction and they hamper our concentration level. So, we can always try to convert our distraction into a way of learning and it is possible if we start investing the time of social media into various online classes. Unique Academy notes and online learning app will be helpful to serve this purpose. CA/CS students can watch online video lectures to maintain their consistency and to get their desired result. In our increasingly connected world of smartphones, tablets, laptops and high- speed internet, distractions are everywhere. You’ll need to make a deliberate and committed effort to stay on task. Make a proper plan of what you are supposed to study and start along with video lectures. With a proper plan in hand and a desire to curb your distractions, we are sure you will be successful in increasing productivity.
