CourseWhat Was my Goal?What I did...What I learned...How Can I Improve my Approach?Potential Next Steps...
SWE•Attempt 2 6.0042j problems from ps3 √•Attempted 3-3c, 3-4a,b,f
•Attempted & solved 3-3b, 3-4c
•One way to prove maximal is proof by contradiction assuming an element > the maximal element
•DAGs are described by their sets of vertices & edges
•Listen to classical music/OSTs to focus on solving math problems/proofs
•Save longer problems for the beginning of sessions so I'm not interrupted mid-problem
•Attempt problems more aggressively even when I'm completely unsure of what to do
•Attempt 3-4f (6.0042j)
•Work through circled problems on ps3
SOLO•Read & highlight IWT through Ch 7 X•Read and highlighted actionable advice from Ch 4-6•How to set up automatic transfers across financial accounts•Spend one long session knocking out the entire book so I can do more meaningful work•Finish highlighting the book
VSK8•Finish the 10x results podcast √
•Make a vert learning plan X
•Skate the 10ft bowl in McKinney X
•Finished listening to and taking notes on the podcast
•Turned my notes into action steps
•You can deconstruct something by asking why repeatedly and searching for untested assumptions•Do all future note taking with pencil and paper•Do a 5 minute discovery journal on "Why can't I do a 2ft b/s air?"
•Analyze the results for untested assumptions
•Make a learning plan for learning backside airs
•Skate the 10ft pool in McKinney
APPD•Spend 30 min focused on APPD √
•Complete 1% of BF √ (2% complete now)
•Completed 1% of BF•How to compile in XCode•Use the correct BF website•Complete the next BF exercise
Overall•Spend 30 min/day focused on GU everyday X•Spent ≥ 30 minutes on GU 6/7 days•The more I regularly I spend time on GU, the easier it becomes to get started everyday
•Once I knock out my minimum requirement I feel energized and excited to keep going, usually after switching courses
•Work on GU every single day, no matter what. This way it is no longer is a choice, just a part of my life•Work on GU everyday, even if it's only for 5 minutes

Notes: After reading How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big I’m testing the system of making progress on Graduate Unschool a no-exceptions daily habit. This is what made my 1% a day course work so well in the past, uninterrupted consistency, and I know once I go a few weeks without missing a day this project will require significantly less willpower.
