Make a time plan: Make plans and fix realistic targets. Achieving your targets will always give you a satisfaction of accomplishing something. This will also act as a stimulant and will let you push further.

2.Never be negative

Avoid multi-tasking: In today’s world, it might look fancy to juggle multiple tasks at once under the notion that we have the resources to do so. This is not always the case. Multitasking might seem fun, but the missing lack of effort on a single task will not give you the desired result. Focus on one problem at a time, solve it and move forward.

5.Meditate

Meditation

Understand what the task is for and visualize the results you will achieve by completing the task. This will create much interest & curiosity towards the task and drive towards results.

7.Get enough sleep
