Better Procrastinating

I have a big project I'm working on (secret for now, haven't decided if I should write about it yet or not), and I've been seriously procrastinating.

It's not that I don't want to do it. It's something I arrived at myself, is very inline with my Life Nomadic goals, and will be very exciting to complete. It's my perfect project.

I'd been working on it for a week, though, and had been getting very little work done. To use a rough estimate, I had done maybe 5% of the work in a week. Twenty weeks until completion is way too long.

Bio vs. Stat. Switching Up Math.

On Imported Blog

If you remember, I am trying to learn something new everyday. I have a list of big projects, and I choose 3 of them to work on at a time. Everyday I alternate between them, hoping to accomplish some progress every week. Unfortunately, I have barely gotten time this last week and will probably get less in the weeks to come. As a result, I'm going to reduce the amount of work to do.

First of all, I don't think I am too motivated to learn Bio. It's a fascinating subject, but learning on it on my own means a lot of memorization - exactly why I hated it in middle school. For this reason I'm going to switch from Biology to Statistics (got a free textbook from work). I could now not be more math-centric; the three big projects I'll be working on are Algebra, Statistics, and Computer Science.

Because I need to reduce the amount of work to do, I should come up with a Study Plan for every week. Let's first outline what I want to complete every week (including reading):

Read minimum of 350 pages every week (50 pages a day).

Finish two weeks in Coursera.
