*fed up with anything less than 75%, want to clock 3 100's today!

**One should control the controllables, and not spend unreasonable energy in some small problem. Look at the whole equation buddy! Shoot for perfection/ego satisfaction, but settle for progress!

I had also the same plan. But then I realised that I'm too afraid of Prelims :D

Prelims can get dicey. One wrong move and then gone. Mains scares me more. Or maybe my experience has been such :P

Entire day was a waste today. Studied only for 3 hrs. 

I face difficulty in maintaining continuity in studies. For 3 days i study 10hrs/day and 4th day will be like 3 hrs only.

How do you guys maintain continuity in studies?

I feel anyone who can consistently manage your seemingly easy plan is the real boss.

4.00-7.30- Discussion of Economy current affairs

7.30-9.00- Exercise+ Dinner+News

Review of 19th July 2020

got up really late @ 10.30 am

11.30-1.30- Lunch and ghost stories with roommate

1.30-4.00- Ford vs Ferrari movie

4.00-10.30pm- Discussion of Environment current affairs(way far bulky than i thought)(6 hrs)


Self Rating-6/10( As studied for 6 hours and completed around 60% of the syllabus)

Improvements needed:-

1)  Enter into prelims mode from 20th july... start solving questions. I want you to read fast and as many times as possible. Do 10 revision. Dont worry about whether you are able to retain it or not in the first go.

2) Don't go to sleep after waking up for the first time in the morning. You will never get up in an hour.(with alarms being off)

@TabsAndChords u look at the average bhai it is 10+10+10+3=33/4 means >8 hrs per day. It is good.
moreover everyday is not the same and no matter what someone or the toppers says there are days when you just cant do anything and whole day or the other half gets wasted. Try to control your feelings about it and take it lightly, try to start early next day and keep in mind that if u are completing 65-70% of task per day ,you will be in much better position.

you can do these things  if you feel that the day is going in wrong direction:-
1. schedule some more sleep.
2. Talk to home members, it really lightens your mood.
3. force urself to do some pushups
4. Drink something hot- green tea/milk/coffee
5. Sometime just let it happen.

baaki upar waale par chhor do

In the video of "The future of work & workplace", Shrayana Bhattacharyya's comments are enough.
