The thought of the future motivates me. Lots of times I’ll be sitting in my room at night playing on my phone and feeling absolutely no motivation to put it away and do homework. Then I remember this: Your middle school grades decide your high school classes (i.e. honors), your high school classes decide your college (i.e. ivy league, community college, or other), and your college decides your future (i.e. engineer, McDonalds’ employee, or whatever else). Usually after that I put the phone down and start working. What motivates you?
