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

I was not able to accomplish either of the two primary targets and yet I am happy with my day. Last week was difficult, could not study as much as I'd have liked. I hope today turns out to be a good omen.

Does anyone know till when Dipin sir CA classes would get completed (Mains 2022) ?



Last year, classes began on 22nd October and the final class was on 22nd Dec (Mains started from 7th Jan). In early December, classes were cancelled for one week due to some issues (probably sir wasn't well, don't remember exactly). So in theory, they were supposed to have been completed by 14th or 15th Dec. 

This year they began on 18th June. So you can take 18th August plus minus one week as approx date.
