    Default Need motivation

    I am a new mum who started a study course while we were ttc. Finding the time while I was working full time was hard also.

    Fast forward 2 years and I've got barely any done and have been told that I need to have 9 modules done before June in order to get any further extensions.

    I am now finding it really difficult to find the time to study with a 7 month old who is full on, actually full on is an understatement. Trying to get everything done is hard. I also can't get any form of deferral.

    I have asked mil to come over and watch ds twice a week for a couple of hours so that I can study and I get messed around. Dh works 6 days a week and really long hours, so we only have Sundays as a family. I've looked into childcare but the wait times in our area are ridiculous. I have no family here and no friends that I can call on, we moved here while I was pregnant.

    Please help!!! I desperately need advice on how I can find 10 or so hours a week to study so that I can get this course done.

    I always break things down as much as possible. Particularly with assessment - it helps get me going and then doesn't seem so daunting. For example - a 2000 word essay = approx 200 for intro, 200 for conclusion. Usually the topic could then be broken into four main sections = 400 per section. So I then just concentrate on one section (only 400 words! Seems much easier than staring at 2000woeks). I always work backwards from the assessment also. So, getting a good grasp on what will be assessed and look through the module work for what is relevant. Again, just makes it less daunting. Best of luck :-)
