Default How you motivate yourself to study??

Hi Guys,
I think motivation is an important thing for us students, since we have to go through very hard times. Sometimes I just feel those long hours of sitting in a table, reading a book, learning new materials can be very harsh . What I like to do is to go read some stuff from those people who are changing the world, and are visionaries, which Make me feel with a surge of energy and keeps me going. So how about other things we as medical students can do to motivate ourselves.?

Ya, I think study partners are critical.
Also, if you have a schedule made, think about switching things every hour so you have a variety. For example, start with 1 block of uworld, then move on to FA for an hour, then switch to watching video such as microbiology on usmle-simple or dit or pathoma, go back to doing another block or two of uworld, go back to first aid, etc. I think keeping variety will get you through the day.

IMO..Study partners are useful only at certain point in your prep...may be close to both of your exams..but anything before that is just waste of your time cause you need to know about strengths and weaknesses..
