    Stay focused - tips for ENTPs

    So I am about to start my second Degree and as much as I am motivated and thrilled to start studying what I really like, I can't help myself but thinking that I am a total disaster and I won't stay focused.
    To make matters worse, I'll be studying it online so the chances for me to fall behind are pretty high.

    So, I was thinking we ENTPs and Ne in general are very much prone to these kind of behaviour so we might need some general tips to survive

    Hard for me to offer encouraging words. I tried the online thing because I could while working and trying to have fun. Online learning lost.

    I stay focused the best when I take breaks. For example, I'll study for 20-40 minutes and then watch something. It's best when I know what I want to do during my breaks, it motivates me. I end up getting more work done than I would if I tried to focus for hours of straight studying.

    That sounds like a wonderful tip! Especially if I know what I'm going to do in that break. I tend to have time in mind rather than what to do in that time and I always ended up making it longer.

    I'd suggest going to a library, coffee shop etc to do online work... might make you less likely to get distracted and help you focus

    They put things into perspective pretty damn quick.


    Okay although the above mentioned would work. Realistically ?

    I beat this by setting goals and then telling the people closest to
    me what my goals are.

    Two fold.. 1 you dont want to let them down by not completing your goals.

    2 Anyone who knows an ENTP irl will know them to be procrastinators and if they
    care about you and your goals they will hound you about it in a good way.

    Its like you are setting up a cheer squad for your goal.

    Works for me MOST of the time but not always.

    Ooooo. Good luck on the online learning. I don't think I could ever do it for more than a short course. I am much better at staying focused on anything if I am interacting with live people. I find I need drivers to keep me focused on most everything in life. I need clear deadlines and people keeping me going. For example, I can never stick to a diet through self motivation. I need to go to a place and weigh in or even better, be in a weight loss challenge with other people I know. Even though I am not competitive, if I have other people around me expecting me to show up to meetings or post my food diary, I can stay focused.

    That being said, an ENTP can do anything if they stay focused on an end goal and if they set a schedule (I know the "S" word). I find that I am more productive at different times of day and I am easily distracted at other times of day. It was always no use for me to study in the evenings and early night. I am so easily distracted at that time. My most productive times are the afternoons and late at night. I also found giving myself a goal of completing a certain task with a reward of some sort once I do helped me stay focused. In other words, you might say, "I have to get through this chapter and once I finish that, I can get out of the house and get some coffee or watch a show". Now, as far as the end goal goes, if the subject you are studying will help you get a job you really want or improve your situation in the future, keep that on your mind. I found I could get through things if I kept my sights ahead and did not focus on the mundane annoyingness of the everyday.

    Good luck!
