After some years in college I feel a bit unmotivated and tiring of the same thing of take more and more classes
I do it mostly to get by and get a better job but it is natural to just feel lazy and unmotivated after years in school?

How many years have you been in college?

What clubs and activities are you involved in?

Mostly see this in students who aren't paying for their own education, and are letting mom and dad pay for college. Not putting forth their best effort seems to happen more when the student doesn't have any "skin" in the game!!

Most people are naturally lazy.

The more I went to school, the more of a hard worker I became - because that was required by college.

So at the same time I might be volunteering for some community committee thing along with other volunteers - I might come back to the next meeting with a 26 page report fully researched - the other volunteers may come back with a 1 page report for what they were assigned.

And that work ethic has stuck with me. Later in life my reports can get longer - 50 pages or more.

I think sometimes people get a little burn out towards the end of college, but most people I know became more motivated as they got close to finishing- motivated to get out and find a job!
