Developing discipline & schedule:

Developing discipline & schedule: 

The important ingredient to succeeding in the civil services is to be consistent and disciplined. We need to find intrinsic motivation for being successful on this path. Erratic and irregular behaviour can be the downfall. Do not try to follow your friends, or others people’s suggestion. Some people may be night owls, while others may be morning lark. Some may prefer to tackle 2-3 subjects at the same time, while others may like to immerse themselves in one subject at one time. 
 
Everyone has a particular method to approach. It is important to know your strengths, weaknesses and your capacity and make a study timetable based on it. But keep the schedule flexible, your comfort is more important than the schedule. A friend of mine is a complete extrovert and needed to go out to feel relaxed. She was aware of this trait and used it to motivate herself. If she completed her targeted portion/topics, she would reward herself with a break to venture out for a coffee or to meet friends for a short time. It worked well for her.  
Removing temptations is also one of the ways to be self disciplined. I realized I was addicted to playing games on my phone, once I deleted the games the habit of playing games also went away. If you feel you are addicted to social media, unplug and delete the apps. This will enable you to focus better.
