12 Simple Tricks To Keep Yourself Motivated MUST READ 1. Start now. Tell yourself to start this moment. Not in the evening and not tomorrow, right NOW. . 2. Set a performance goal. Setting a goal helps you find your way forward. This comes in handy for various things, such as, if you have a bunch of emails to reply to, or laundry to do, or bills to pay. Setting a goal will help you tackle all of this. . 3. Make an if-then rule. The if-then rule is very simple. Suppose you finish a task that had been pending a while, treat yourself. For minor tasks, you can get yourself chocolates or a nice meal. For bigger tasks, you can treat yourself with a vacation. . 4. Don‚Äôt think about survival. Everyone learns to survive sooner or later. Sadly, we are so worried about making enough money, or doing things the right away, that we forget to look at the more important things. Instead of survival, we should motivate ourselves to become the best version of ourselves, the best of everything. We should aim at setting an example and nothing less than that. . 5. Rise above your insecurities. Instead of feeling jealous about other people‚Äôs successes, try and figure out the reason behind it. There must be a story. They would have developed great habits, worked hard and made certain compromises to get where they have. . 6. Get a routine. Believe it or not, this habit makes a huge difference. A routine can help you get your life on track. It will keep you going. When you finally have a routine to follow, focus on it and try to get better at it every day. . 7. Embrace discipline. There are times when you‚Äôll realise that motivation isn‚Äôt the problem. Instead, being non-disciplined is. Has it ever happened with you that you are constantly inspired to work towards your goal, but you can‚Äôt make time for it? This is where discipline comes in the picture. . 8. Keep realistic expectations from yourself. Don‚Äôt add too many things on your to-do list. DON‚ÄôT give yourself improbable deadlines. . 9. Stay away from toxic people. Stay away from people who make you feel terrible about yourself. Keep miles away from that girl who cribs all the time. And stop talking to that fellow who can never utter a nice word about you. . 10. Understand the value of that ‚Äėextra‚Äô bit. It is possible that you have both talent and resources. You are working hard, but you‚Äôre falling short because you are failing to take that extra step. Think about it. Maybe you are just that tiny step away. . 11. Ask yourself - ‚Äė Do I want it bad enough?‚Äô The answer to this question will tell you how far you are willing to go to fulfil your dreams. . 12. Stick notes. You need to be constantly inspired. So stick inspiring notes on your office table, or put motivational wallpapers on your laptop. Every time you feel bored, just look at it. It sounds silly but these things actually help.

Some Random Tips for your Quant Section ¬†¬†¬† 1...To find greater between fractions without calculating their decimal values. Here is a short example: Consider 4/5 and 6/7 Cross multiply the numerator and denominator of both the fractions. 4¬†√ó 7 = 28 ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†6 √ó 5 = 30 30 > 28 so the fraction carrying 6 as numerator is greater, i.e. 6/7 > 4/5 * You can use this method when you are asked to find out the greatest or smallest among given fractions. ¬† 2..Method to solve mixed fractions. Here is an example: Consider finding the value for 2(1/3) + 4(2/7) + 5(1/6). This can be calculated as: (2 + 4 + 5) + [(1/3) + (2/7) + (1/6)] = 11 + (14 + 12 + 7)/42 = 11 + 33/42 = 495/42 Now similarly 2(1/3) + 4(2/7) ‚Äď 5(1/6) = (2 + 4 ‚Äď 5) + [(1/3) + (2/7) ‚Äď (1/6)] = 1 + (14 + 12 ‚Äď 7)/42 = 1 + 19/42 = 61/42 ¬†¬†¬† 3...Radical Symbol (‚ąö) When x^2 = 25, then x = 5 and -5 because 5¬†√ó 5 = 25 and also (-5) √ó¬†(-5) = 25 But when x = ‚ąö25 or 25^1/2, then x = 5 only because when radical symbol is used, we can take only positive (or zero) values. ¬†¬†¬† 4...Squares of numbers ending with 5. Consider examples: (25)^2 = 2¬†√ó 3 | 5¬†√ó¬†5 = 625 (85)^2 = 8¬†√ó 9 | 5 √ó 5 = 7225 (105)^2 = 10 √ó 11 | 5 √ó 5 = 11025 ¬†¬† 5..Multiplication with number 15. 120 √ó 15 = 120 + (120/2) = 120 + 60 = 1800 162 √ó 15 = 162 + (162/2) = 162 + 81 = 2430 185 √ó 15 = 185 + (185/2) = 185 + 92.5 = 2775

This is worth reading..motivational as well as good for English comprehension..:) ....... .... Two targets with a bow........ Dailogue Between Ego and Spirit - Ignited Minds I recently re-read Dr. Kalam's "Ignited Minds" - every page is so full of inspiration, experience...must read for every Indian especially youth. Dr. Kalam ends the book with an excellent story summarizing his thoughts. The story is titled "Dailogue between Ego and Spirit" and here it goes: ¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† EPILOGUE ‚ÄúI was thinking what can summarize the book aptly‚ĶI recall reading a story on internet about a conversation between two babies‚ĶEgo and Spirit‚Ķwhile in womb. Spirit says to Ego, ‚ÄėI know you are going to find this hard to accept, but I believe there is life after birth.‚Äô Ego responds, ‚ÄėDon‚Äôt be foolish. Look around you. This is all there is. Why must you always be thinking about something beyond this reality? Accept your lot in life.‚Äô Spirit quietens down for a while, but not for long. ‚ÄėEgo, now don‚Äôt get angry, but I also believe that there is a Mother. A Mother! Ego laughs. How can you say that? You‚Äôve never seen a Mother, you don‚Äôt know what Mother is.Why can‚Äôt you accept that this is all there is? You are here alone with me. This is your reality. ‚ÄėEgo‚Äô, Spirit begs, please listen.What about those constant pressures we both feel, those movements that make us so uncomfortable sometimes, the feeling that we are being squeezed in as we grow? I think we shall soon have a new life, that we shall see light.‚Äô Spirit tries not to bother Ego again but cannot resist one last try. ‚ÄėEgo,‚Äô she says, ‚ÄėI will not bother you again. But I do believe that after all this discomfort not only shall we see light but also experience the bliss of meeting Mother. Ego‚Äôs reply is ofcourse, that Spirit is truly mad. What I want to tell the people of my country through this book is that they must never be content with that which has been presented to them‚Ķ‚Ķ" - Dr. Kalam.

We would not know which Hindi movies are being discussed without the clause (copies of English movies). It would be gross injustice to say that the speaker does not like Hindi movies. He dislikes only the copies. ‚ÄėThat‚Äô clauses are hence essential clauses. I do not like Hindi movies,¬†which¬†are copies of English movies. That the speaker does not like Hindi movies at all is what the sentence suggests. It is as if the reason for his dislike is that they are copies of English movies. Besides, ‚Äėwhich‚Äô clause can also be separated from the other clause by a comma. The comma is not possible with the ‚Äėthat‚Äô clause. 50.¬†WHO VS WHOM WHO‚Äď we use ‚ÄėWHO‚Äô to ask which person does an action or which person is a certain way. e.g.-¬†Who made the birthday cake? Who is in the kitchen? WHOM‚Äď is used as an object. We use ‚ÄėWHOM‚Äô to ask which person receives an action. e.g-¬†Whom are you going to invite? Whom did he blame for the accident? Memory key :- Use the HE/ HIM approach / method to decide which of the two shall get used:- HE= WHO HIM= WHOM e.g. WHO / WHOM wrote the letter. The answer to this is ‚ÄėHe wrote the letter‚Äô. So, we will use ‚ÄėWHO‚Äô here‚Ķ More examples to demonstrate the rule :- Katrina consulted an astrologer WHO/ WHOM she met at Chandigarh. ( Now here ‚Äď ‚ÄėShe met HER at Chandigarh) . So, we‚Äôll use ‚ÄėWHOM‚Äô Priyanka is the girl WHO / WHOM got the job. (Now here- ‚ÄėSHE got the job‚Äô) . So, we‚Äôll use ‚ÄėWHO‚Äô.
