I have been analysing my mistakes, problems and root causes for not succeeding - which in the present context means not clearing mains in 3 attempts. I am very lethargic. If I get into doing something for example if I am reading or making notes on a particular topic - after persiting thru the intial hesitant hour or two, I may persist for hours with conentration or 2 minute breaks, or continue such a routine for days. But when I get lethargic things gets very problematic. On one hand you have a very persistent phase of few days, and on the other hand a lethargic, not-doing-anything phase for weeks, even a month or two.
I think persistence is a very essential characteristic one needs to exhibit to be able to achieve any sustainable gain. Apart from the cliche of finding a balanced pace of studying, and practising - how are others like me dealing with it? How do you come out of such long lethargic phases - when it happens often? I am sure many people who fail consistently identify with this. But is there anyone successful who may have come out of this state of your very own pathetic, disabling self - success here ranges from clearing mains to geting under-100 rank. Any succesful people like me?
