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

PYQ - CSE 2020 Question

How to interpret the 3rd statement?:

1)in last 3 decades, steadily production increased.... (implying there is no fluctuation)

or

2)compared to 30 years ago, current figures are more.... (implying there could be fluctuations in between years)

I have seen several explanations - few interpreting the statement as 1 and few as 2.

I know this isn't the correct thread to post this, but I'm so tired man. 


Year after year same range, narrow margins. Not even getting the chance to write mains despite preparing for it. The vagueness of questions kills me now to the extent that I'll think 5 times before marking Art 21 for right to privacy now! 

I'm so f tired.

I wasn't that close but what I've got is pretty unexpected. But whatever happened has already happened. I know it's not easy but try focusing on 5th of June, you're close. All the best!

@Philosopher94 I totally feel you, I am at 82. The timing is really ironic for UPSC to release the results so close to the actual prelims, but you must not let it get the best of you. You were so close and I'm sure you'll do great this time. :)

Targets for May 31 (92) - targets repeat.

Was unsure about posting targets for now, upsc marksheet made the evening awful. Same marks for the third time. But need to carry on somehow. One friend rightly written here before - things don’t just happen on their own, they are made to happen.

Good luck dostoen, lots of love : )
