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

Hiii people. Good to see you guys putting up daily updates will be joining you guys for sometime now. 

As I move towards prelims dominated preparation guided by SFG I am feeling little anxious and nervous because prelims has been my great fear and as@Neyawn says if it has happened it can happen again. So beating my own fears is the objective, which also includes waking up at 6 in winters.

Done with the test. I was worried I would not be able to write for 3 hours on the go( had very little answer writing practice so far). But I did and while lot of improvement in quality is needed obviously , it was still so satisfying to almost finish the paper in time. 

Targets for this Week

1. International Relations- Notes Revision

2. History- Finish Early Medieval (Ch-10 from Upinder Singh)

3. CA- Oct,21 Monthly

4. Revision for next MGP Test

Couldn't read CA monthly. Rest done. Overall a decent week with a lot of positives.

Targets for this week

  • Plassey to Partition(2nd Reading)
  • Revision for next MGP Test(GS-2)
  • Prelims PYQ Analysis for Eco and Env.
  • and ofc Newspaper+CA

Keep moving one step at a time. The destination will arrive sooner than you realize.

Had a good start but got sick mid-week .So all targets stuck at 50% or thereabouts.

Targets for this Week:

  • Finish Previous week's backlogs
  • Write last MGP test before Pre.
  • Continue with PYQ Analysis.

PS: Has anyone used PMF's Environment book. Would you recommend it instead of Shankar IAS?

1 Newspaper + 1 Monthly Magazine(Vision) + As many revisions as possible.

I occasionally go through websites like DownToEarth, PRS etc. but only if I have free time in schedule.


Regarding State vs CBI, it was in the news so many times this year. It is a repeated issue that pops up every few months. So Epic might have covered it in some earlier month.
