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

Hi guys!

Friday and Saturday was not good. Anxiety was at its peak. 

Last 2 days, gave tests + planned out in detail till Mains. Just the act of planning out has calmed me down and motivated me a lot. I've changed my approach too a bit. 

Now the goal is to stick to the daily targets till September 15th. 

Targets for today:

1) Real Analysis (1/3)

2) Pending Answer Writing (8 questions) 

3) CA class revision (classes 3,4,5,6)

4) Newspaper 

Have a nice day :)

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.

Bad health, first day managed 80% of targets, second day only newspaper done and some GS(but no concentration).
Today:
1) Newspaper - done

2) Essay videos and brainstorming

3) GS: Finishing Ethics notes

Answer writing and optional if only the above targets get completed.

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 

Missed many targets yesterday. Need to move to GS3 at the earliest. 


Targets: 

  • Finish Vectors 
  • Read 3D - Till conicoids 
  • Finish GS4 Test Analysis 
  • Newspaper 
  • Answer Writing + analysis 

Today wasn't a bad day per se but I could not start 3D. Essentially, the balancing problem remains an issue. Hope I find a way to increase the hours to get rid of this. 


Targets: 

  • Priority: Finish 3D Theory 
  • GS4 - final touch - fill syllabus & PYQ gaps 
  • Essay Prep
  • Essay Test 
  • Newspaper 
  • If time, Answer writing analysis and topper copies
