Planning and execution
**Initial part of this post is basically a note to myself**
I finally feel relieved today. To be very honest, I have been not feeling myself lately, I stay mad at myself all the time, and always feeling overburdened with work. You know why?The problem has been this,
Big load on my shoulders aka thesis writing->no clue where to start-> hence no start-> hence the load keeps piling up-> hence tension builds up-> hence dissatisfaction-> then comes a phase where you don’t care about the world-> additional dissatisfaction leading to a stage of funk.
I’ll be graduating in the summer but I want to finish all my work by the end of April, at least that is the plan. When you are confused/in a state of funk, you return to the basics right. In this case I decided to go back to the basics well illustrated in Sarah’s guest post.
Based on the rules,
ºWrite it down: My checklist is ready with a total project breakdown, weekly breakdown and daily task breakdown.
ºDo it now: the realization had set in and procrastination will be a killer in this situation.
I am targeting my writing based on pages and that way the task will seem less daunting. If I try and break the big task in small chunks any other way, it seems scary! By going the page way, I feel I can get more done.
Breakfast: Yep I am doing well here, eating my breakfast everyday. Today I enjoyed an everything bagel with laughing cow garlic and herb cheese.
Dinner: we had a party last night at my friends. Today I just ate some of the leftovers + a nice salad to go along.
Q. Do you leave things for the very last minute or do you work and plan in advance?
Q. Best thing you ate this weekend? The best thing I ate was a lovely potato curry that one of my friend brought to the potluck party.
Have a great monday folks.
