13th july review

1st slot of studies - 2 hrs study. 25% targets completed

2nd slot of studies - 1.5 hour study . 25% targets completed

3rd slot of studies - 0 hr study

4th slot of studies- 1 hr study . 25% targets completed

Total hours studied - 4 hrs 30 min   Overall targets completed - around 20 %

Overall wasted 13th july. Could not focus on books properly. Only good thing was that i did meditation today.

14th july targets :-

1st slot - 3 hrs current affairs

2nd slot - 3 hrs polity static revision

3rd slot - 1.5-2 hrs current prelims specific

4th slot- 3 hrs polity static revision

advice for myself - don't waste 1st slot of study otherwise whole day gets wasted.

13th - wasted overall.. Took too much time in deciding what to study.. Pt or mains or optional.. And then what in tat.. Finally chose prelims test analysing mistakes.. 

Lesson learnt - shuru kar doh kuch bhi.. Dont run from ur fear.. My fear r tests.. 


14 July - targets-

Complete vision tests upto 22 analysis(except geography) .. Big target.. Lets see how much can do..and mix up with current affairs magazine if gets heavy..

14th July 2020

Kal pura din barbaad hua uska ek reason tha my mind was not sure in the morning over what to study, so i will be shifting to complete mains for 12-15 days and then complete prelims for 8-10 days in month of july rather than doing both things at the same time.

7.00-7.30- Exercise+yoga

8.00-12.30- Philosophy 4 lectures(class)

1.2.30-2.00- Lunch+ sleep

2.00-6.30- Philosophy notes

6.30-8.00- meditation+Dinner+News

8.00-09.45- Art and culture Current affairs

REVIEW OF 14TH JULY 2020

7.00-7.30- Exercise+yoga(1/2 hour)

8.00-12.30- Philosophy 4 lectures(class)(4 hr 30 min)

1.2.30-2.00- Lunch+ sleep

2.00-6.30- Philosophy 4 lectures(4 hrs 30 min)

6.30-8.00- meditation+Dinner+(1/2 hr meditation+exercise)

8.30-9.00- phone

9.00-10.00- News+ phone


Self Rating-7.5/10(as studied around 10 hours including yoga+exercise+meditation and completed 80% of task)

Improvements needed:-
1) If u have wasted a day try to compensate the next day
2) Start studying for prelims atleast 2 hrs a day or i will have to allocate it in the morning schedule which will hamper your optional studies

Remarks:- Overall the day was satisfactory. Talking to mom gives you the utmost pleasure. Talk often

14th July review-

Half day checked answers of 18 vision tests.. 5 still left.. As have not attempted them yet (initial tests and test 23..science n tech) 

Slept 3pm to 4 pm.. Wasted 1 hr to get up... So from 5 pm started revision of environment.. 


Plan to revise 1 day subject and then analyse test papers next day in batch..currently plan to do this way.. Lets see how many time I change it.. 


Now will study for mains optional upto 1 am hopefully.. 


Today lesson - after reading comments of 13th July performances by other thread members.. Realised that it is normal to have such off days..


And actually I am thankful to forum for providing such a platform in such time.. Where some r away from Delhi.. Some r away from libraries or coachings.. And Some r just away..
