# The motivation for learning Math II

Anyway when you want to learn a Math concept or solve a problem you
just do it. Procrastination is no good for you. I discovered that from
my own experience and even now I am exercising the ability to not postpone things I need to do. Actually it is a battle that lasts
a lifetime. These days you have many distractions like the Internet and
television which can consume a lot of your time and not in a productive
manner. The problem is that you have these two big distractions
everywhere and you need to learn to moderate your time spent in front of
the screens. The screens are not a factor of motivation for you if you
want to learn Math, the books will do it for you. In fact the screens
will put you down for good, you will not be able to concentrate on doing
math problems and exercises, you will not have sufficient energy to
think logically and clearly without thinking at some other things in the
same time. Do not use the screens when you learn math because you will
forget most of it in a very short period of time. And believe me when I
say that, I know this from my own experience.

The screens can be a major draw back for you and is better for you to
get used with the books and read and practice from the books, it's
healthier and a lot more productive. Sports and healthy food are good
for the brain while learning math, but also try to set a goal for
yourself: what topics do you want to learn and how much time do you set
for that. This is probably the most important thing: the goal. What is
your goal? Why do you want to learn math? Make a list with the reasons
you want to learn math and with your goal and put that in a place where
you can see it everyday. Think about if you can help people with that.
Helping people is the most powerful motivation you can get and think
about the ways you can do that by using mathematics. I will write down
more about this in the next article of mine, in the same series. Thank
you
