It’s been a year that I have been writing monthly reviews now. I have come a long way. The small things which I have been doing every month added up to something big. I finished French on Duolingo, reached a plateau on Elevate, read a lot of books, writing challenges, watched interesting courses on various sites, experimented with different exercises, made changes to the way I am as a person. It has been a wonderful journey. None of this would have been possible without the monthly planning. I have longer way to go.
Review of March:
I was not able to read all the list but I read close to 7 books. Each book gave the same message in a different style. If I have to summarize it all, you reap what you sow. You create your reality with your thoughts. Choose your thoughts carefully and move towards staying positive.
I haven’t made much progress in exercising. The awesome part was my knee pain has not come back after doing squats.
I wrote a couple of book reviews. Apart from that I was busy writing for my book. So I couldn’t concentrate much on blogging.
All I could complete was development psychology on edx and a bit of introduction to psychology on coursera. Also, even though it was not a part of the plan, I thoroughly enjoyed the course on positive psychology on coursera.
I made a lot of progress on my assignments. I wrote enough to exhaust the ink in the pen. Thankfully the last day got extended and hoping to finish the remaining in next two weeks.
Plans for April:
It is a very ambitious plan to publish a book in around a month that too when I am doing it for the first time. But I wanted a challenge which will be really challenging. I am hoping to at least finish writing if not publishing. But I don’t see anything wrong in being over ambitious about publishing either.
I have no other choice than to finish them this month. I need to be more serious about this than last month.
I need to focus more on my text books than on other books. I am targeting to finish at least half the syllabus this month. One chapter a day will also be good enough progress. I will make use of my morning commute time for this.
Since I could do only 2 courses last month, hoping to do the remaining this month. Learning through multiple modes reinforces learning and also acts as revision.
There are not too many plans for this month because the few ones which I have chosen are by themselves demanding, challenging and time consuming.
How was your March? What are your plans for April?
