CSE 2022: Plan/ Strategy/ Daily Routine

This is an everything thread for all stuff 2022. You can post your daily goals, end-of-the-day updates, weekly targets or any weird thing you use to measure your progress. You can put into words & post the soul-sucking sadness that is threatening to devour you & your productivity. You can write what made your day & let others experience the happiness too, at least vicariously. This is a thread to pick each other up. This is a thread to keep each other accountable. This is a no-judgement zone.

--------

“This is one more piece of advice I have for you: don't get impatient. Even if things are so tangled up you can't do anything, don't get desperate or blow a fuse and start yanking on one particular thread before it's ready to come undone. You have to realize it's going to be a long process and that you'll work on things slowly, one at a time.”

— Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood

It ain't about how hard you hit, it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward !

Same here. Onenote is perfect for me. Simple and easy to use. Xmind was one great suggestion by someone on this forim. I wish I had known about mindmapping earlier.

The only good thing about notion is its paging feature. You can create unlimited layers. 


However in comparison to onenote notion lacks various features especially formatting while copy pasting.  Moreover notion doesn't support advanced color features.

I’ll also start from tomorrow maybe. I’ve been away from forum to detox myself from virtual world. Failure at prelims level was also a setback for me, needed time to recover fully. I had almost left this preparation cycle. But some success results of my friends and classmates motivated me.

For next 7-8 months, only prelims specific and optional (as I changed it this time) preparation. This time, I don’t want any excuse from myself. 

Here’s how it’ll go:

 Morning- Optional (3-4) answers daily + Ember & Ember (or other optional book)

Afternoon- not expecting too much (as I feel sleepy, and other commitments). But I’ll try to read CA and Newspaper.

Evening- Revision of the previous day tasks.

Night- GS part for Prelims. Expecting to cover all subjects before SFG starts.


 I am very poor at consistency. Hope that doesn’t happen this time.

Friends,

Could anyone provide feedback on VisionIAS Advanced Course GS Mains (http://visionias.in/mainsadvance/) if you have attended it earlier or known about it ?

I have some answer writing practice, but do not have proper notes for mains. Since I'm planning for 2022 exam, I thought of joining this course now to understand concepts and make notes from mains answer writing perspective.

Any feedback / review / comparison of this Vision advanced course of GS or QEP or Forum current affairs would be highly helpful.

Thank you!

@Neyawn Sir, 2022 would be my 6th attempt. Failed in 4 prelims earlier & might be failing 2021 prelims too because of CSAT despite scoring 120+ in Paper 1. So, what should be my strategy for November to February ? GS + Optional notes are already prepared but no answer writing as such. What should be the course of action now ?

Targets for 24.10.2021:

 Caste, gender, intersectionality and fundamental basis of affirmative action: From Optional and GS 2 perspective- Wide reading and Consolidation of notes


Also, isn’t it weird that India-Pakistan clashes are so loaded, but India-England is such a sober affair?
