Dear Archy, I'm an architecture and urban planning student from brazil and I'm having some problems with staying motivated, specially at my uni. I'm get usually demotivated as our professors don't instigate us to go out and look for other things, or get out of the box. We usually have this closed method and that's it for most people, but I'm never satisfied with that. I'd like to know if you can give me some tips or tools on how to be more open minded and motivated! I love your blog! Thanks :)
One of the biggest things you can do in life is learn to motivate yourself. Do not place the burden of motivation in anyone else because this will only limit yourself. Be forever curious about learning, about improving, about challenging preconceptions for your own growth. Professors come and go, bosses come and go, peers come and go, but what you do must always be driven by you and you alone.
