Here is a list of stuff I WILL achieve!

  • finish calculus 2. I'm finished when I can answer 50 random calc2-level questions with a 'high score'. Achieve this within a month. [added to schedule]
  • finish calculus 3. I'm finished when I can answer 50 random calc3-level questions with a 'high score'. Achieve this within 2 months. [added to schedule]
  • Bench 240 lb. First, aim to do this in 3 months but, in one month, use progress to make another, more sensible, deadline date. Only do this once. [added to schedule]

Edit the bench goal to end in June.

  • Write a neural network that does anything, so long as it works. Achieve this within 2 months.
  • Cover differential equations course. I'm finished when I can answer 50 random DE-level questions with a 'high score'. [added to schedule]

  • First thing: schedule time to schedule time! This should be at a time when you know you will be free from anything else. It's the day when you schedule your projects up until the next schedule day. This is a crucial first step.
  • Each project needs a book of its own. This is where you write your work. This is hard proof of where you left off and what you have covered. When it's complete, it serves as a testament to what you achieved. If you don't have a record, you won't remember where you left off and you'll go over the same shit more than once.
  • Once you learn a thing, add it to a 'rotating list of exams': This works like flash cards. I call them flash exams. Each day, you do a flash exam. If you do badly at it, you have to repeat it again soon. If you do well, you don't have to do it until much later. This serves to keep ...
