Plans made for studying never work.. Isn’t it?


Few days back Mrudula asked me “Plans made for studying never work.. Isn’t it? “

What will you answer her?

Isn’t it a clock or a time table coming to our mind whenever we think about planning?

Is that enough for planning..? Are you focused on time planning ..? ( splitting the tasks on a timely mode)

Recently I read some interview of an IAS candidate. He was telling like never did he cut down his lessons as the planned time is over. He worked over night to meet the deadlines and completed his studies without compromising the quality of his studies.

He had a great point there.

Have your goals fixed in both time domain as well as in quality domain, have intermittent targets, work hard. That’s it.

  1. Balance of time and quality can work wonder..

  2. Exams the name is enough, the time starts working quickly than expected. So it is important to balance both time and also quality of reading. Once we find the balance it is easy to grasp the content. Actually the problem is we read just for the exams. In this way our mind is concentrated on exams rather than the actual content and subject. Thus we don’t grasp the total content of topic and in exams a little twist we feel like a large turn. .
    That idea of IAS student is awesome. Thanks for sharing Akhila. . Have a good time. . 🙂

  3. Absolutely right… As always! Whenever I am in a fuss, first thing I do is to make a neat and tidy time table. It something takes time to follow it but once I get a hang of it…✌✌It’s also said that we can develop a new habit in fifteen days.

  6. Yeah true said.. and making plans we could never study


  7. That’s a great piece of advice.☺ But even I agree that it is a bit more difficult in practice.. As you have mentioned, dedication can help us overcome this.
    Parallely, I feel a small thought at the back of our mind about ‘next time’ is enough to distract us..

    • thanks Suprith.. Distractions are mainly social media itself, right..today i didn’t check my mobile or anything else till noon..it was difficult.. but forcefully done..I know it is not a big thing, not even an accountable thing.. but felt satisfied..

      • well if people are too addictive to smartphones , FB probably they should celebrate no FB day or no whatsapp day once in a week atleast 😉
        well i should not be too critic about it but then its not what you plan..its about actions.. have you heard this ?–> “ideationwithout execution is just a delusion ”

  10. The word “tomorrow” ruins all the time table “let these exams go I will study from next sem” this is the common sentence we all follow especially me, but never studied😊👍

  16. easier said than done. If academic books are as interesting as novels than it could be done before time limits but academic books’re pretty lame.
