[This article is the 4th part of a motivational series. Please read Motivational – An Introduction (Part 1), Motivational – Goals and Rewards (Part 2) and Motivational – Learning and Frustration (Part 3) before this one]
Now that we have found new ways of learning and we know how frustration can help with that, I’m going to switch to another topic: Profession vs Hobby. I will try to emphasise the pros and cons of the two concepts above and how you can successfully use them to boast your motivation.
As you might have found out, I’ve joined the team behind Sprout’s Tale in the last couple of months to help with their development – Dev Blog

In the second part of this motivational series I focused on goals and rewards and how these are means to both develop ourselves and keep our motivation up while doing so. I also emphasised that the hardest part in achieving a longer term goal is actually learning new things to cope with new problems and this only gets harder with age.
In this part I will focus on learning: what it is, how do we do it effectively and why it is so hard to do.

In the previous motivational article I tried to show that reality is the common understanding of a group of people about the world around them and getting more “in-tune” with reality helps you establish achievable goals. In order to get more “in-tune” with the commonly perceived reality you have to force yourself to socialise with as many people as you are able to, find about how they perceive reality and use that information to tune yours.
This time around I’m going to write about goals and what it takes to achieve them.
