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

Can someone please tell if there is any difference between the 195 pages print version and and 208 pages pdf version of Forum’s Ethics Red Book

Today's todo:
1) GS writing: The usual done, more can be done.
2) GS reading
3) Essay
4)Optional reading
5) Yojana
Bye bye newspaper

It was a good day, but the problem with the good days is that they are most probably followed by bad days.
1, 2, 3, 5 done. 4 partially done. Couldn't resist the temptation of newspaper, more than FOMO, the nature of newspaper reading(no need of memorizing things) makes it attractive.

Was not able to finish Ethics today but I'm happy with all the ground that I covered. Will be able to finish it tomorrow. Also, since I'm going to prioritise GS tomorrow I'll pick up an easier mathematics topic instead of S&D. 


Targets: 

  • Vectors - Try to finish 
  • Finish Ethics Theory + EN Examples 
  • Essay Prep - Quotes + Basics Doc 
  • Newspaper 
  • Answer Writing - review earlier answers 


Let's try to make this weekend a good one. Good luck everyone :)

Not a great day but I’m glad I finished the theory portion of GS4. 


Targets: 

  • Finish Vectors 
  • GS4 Test Analysis 
  • Newspaper 
  • Essay Brainstorming 
  • If time, topper answer copies

@S_S_Singh I gave the first Vision test today. At home the issue is, at least for me, that i go very easy on brain. There is little to no sense of urgency. I attempted 13/20 in 3 hours. But as this was my first test, i hope to improve and will continue to give online. How is the experience offline?

@Vijvish I also have same opinion about offline test. That's why offline is better but time and tiredness after that is subject of concern. Let's see how it goes. Test wise attempted 18 questions.
