"Absolutely brilliant, really opened up my mind to effort and how you did it within about 6 minutes from both videos is just amazing. Good job."
"This is a great idea! This will likely help in my revision and upcoming sixth form tasks! Normally, I can't stand doing work at home for more than 2 hours and this might just motivate me to work harder and do more work!"
"I like this idea, because I always struggle to find motivation for something if I don't feel any personal benefit from it. This method will definitely help me to feel like I'm getting an advantage from my hard work."
"I love this technique as it allows you to think more logically about your goals. Also saying why you need to achieve your goals can increase motivation"
