Kam jyada toh kismat ki kahani hai, lekin is thread se continuity toh bani hai padhai me. Pehle gochi(total off days) khub laga karti thi.

@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


Thanks for suggestions brother

i will definitely incorporate pushups and greent tea idea.

I noticed that whenever i waste 1-2 hrs after waking up, my whole day gets wasted.

yesterday i read newspaper in the morning(which i generally read at night) and logged into facebook after a long time and the news and newsfeed disturbed me. Everywhere it is corona, communal riots, caste extremism ,fake news,religious polarisation, mob lynching and disturbing videos of riots.  Upar se economy ki halat bhi kharab hai.

All these things disturbed me and i wasted 2-3 hours.

Now i am going to follow Newayn's advice strictly that is start studying within half an hour of waking up and achieve something substantial by halfday. I won't overthink about how to study, what to eat, what to do this and that etc.. . I am going to minimise the decision making process and just start doing.

True! 

when i post my targets here i feel like someone is watching me so i have to study sincerely :D

We are accountable to each other. No cheatings allowed , only honesty towards work.

21st july targets :-

1st slot - current affairs for mains (3 hr)

2nd slot - Geography static revision (3 hrs)

3rd slot - current mains revision (1-1.5 hrs)

4th slot - Geography static revision probably map-work ( 3 hrs).


20 days of july are already over. Time is running at a faster pace than ISRO's gslv mk III rocket. i realised that i did not study sincerely in months of april, may and june. i wasted a lot of time then. Now i cannot waste my precious hours of coming 2 and half months. I don't know whether prelims will happen on 4th oct or not but what i know is that i am going to study hard for it. Thoughts of studying for mains will lure me because my subconscious mind will tell me that prelims might not happen on 4th oct so study your optional but i won't fall into that trap now.
