    Exams in 4 months, haven't prepared well.

    Since I started my authority site, I've seen my focus turning drastically towards computer and procrastination.

    Before the exam nights, I promise myself, after giving the exams this time, I'll start studying my face off. And when I'm done giving the exams, I revert to my comfort zone.

    To get rid of the guilt of procrastination, I often do things like-

    - writing articles
    - looking for practical SEO tactics
    - Roaming through social medias
    - I even started reading psychology books, lol

    I understand, my problem is, I think internet marketing can liberate me and study is not as important. I also understand, if I make a bad result, I'll be demeaned by family, friends, go to an inferior college etc. etc.

    Dad promised me 600$ to invest on my internet marketing journey after the exam ends. But I highly doubt that he'll still give me the money if I don't score an A.

    So, what would be your suggestion? How do I stick to my studies, providing internet marketing and procrastination is butting in freaking hard? I seriously need your help.

    If you can outline how important studies are for me solidly, please do so, that'll give me a solid reason to stick to studies for these 8 months. Maybe, now all I need is a little convincing from the members of this forum I admire.

    I face the same issues sometimes. In the last weeks, I started each morning writing down all things I need or want to accomplish for my web projects on that day. When I'm done with that I write down everything that needs to be done for studying. I start studying then and won't touch a single part of my projects until I'm completely done with studying.

    It's hard not to lose focus on studying and you need some discipline but for me, it's highly effective. I value the time I spend working more than the time studying. Therefore, I had the problem too that I wouldn't care about a day where I did some work but didn't learn. But when I first have to finish studying before I'm able to work I just want to finish that shit because I want to have some time left to push my projects.

    Whenever you have no motivation just tell yourself that you do all of that for you. You do not only work for a great future but you study for it too. Take care of your studies and you'll have a backup plan if you decide to go full-time IM, you'll have the appreciation of your family and you'll be proud of yourself.

    As you seem to be highly motivated to work on your projects, use that in your favor. You'll have the motivation to work after you studied but you will have a hard time studying after you already worked.

    Hey buddy, I really I appreciate that you took the time to reply me in detail. Okay then, I'll start writing down stuff I need to do with my website and studies.

    And that motivation thing you spoke about, I'll be solely focusing on that. And also, I'll do the project work after I finish studying. Thank you sir. Means a lot.

    There is no such thing as procrastination, it's just about what you spend your time doing.
    By saying your procrastinating, your putting a fancy word on doing fuck all, and blaming this unknown force.

    if your dad says he'll give you $600 towards what you're doing just for an A, why don't you just get an A?

    I'm facing the same exact problem. Couldn't find a way out of this. I need to sacrifice one thing for the other. Btw, which standard are you in?

    i can fully empathise with you..
    studies are a complete waste of time if you plan on earning passive income, freeing up your time, being independant from the machine.

    put it this way.. do u wanna work for the big belly man at the top of the food chain??
    making peanuts and gettin him fat and rich

    or you wanna be fat n rich yourself??
    maybe its better to be rich and healthy but you get the point
    or do you??

    Its normal happens to everyone. Everyone above me have suggested some good ways and ideas that can help you tackle the situations. Whats I can suggest is to keep your diet healthy and do regular exercise like join Gym perform normal workout since just with a 1 hour workout blood will start pumping properly. This will also keep you active all day, Its just my opinion and way try it if you are not lacking it maybe it can help.

    You have your time now to pass your exams, you have all the time in the world to make it in Internet Marketing, so put your effort into your exams, then concentrate on IM.
