What do you do when you are not motivated to work on ICS?

Post by Blue Devil Knight on May 30th 2009, 6:29 pm

I'm feeling really unmotivated today to finish the annotated self-quiz game. It's the last thing I need to do in the first month of the course. Will I do it or not? I was planning to finish it, and then do a slow game tonight. Not sure what I'm gonna do at this point.

Are you talking about the Petra Nad game?

If you are feeling unmotivated to really study it in detail yet feel you should do it why not just concentrate more on the solutions than your own work.

I.e just follow the game move my move, have a little go at attempting to see what is going on and then look at the annotations.

If you can just catch the general idea, i.e what problem needs to be resolved, then that in itself is a great start without you spending hours on trying to work out how to solve it.

Human memory being what it is you can always go back to it later when you have more knowledge and replay it then, you'll have forgotten most of the moves so it will feel like a new task by then anyway.

Just do a little, not as much as you planned. Maybe that is enough to get you started and do what you wanted to do.
