My master thesis
I recently started beeminding the ankification of various non-fiction texts. My next one is Art of Electronics, 3rd Edition. I won’t be ankifying it all, but coming in at over 1200 pages, it’ll be a long haul. (Just because I have a few degrees in engineering doesn’t mean I can always whip out various transistor topologies without a quick review to remind myself… and I’d like to change that.)
Cool! Good luck - what are you planning as predictive goals for achieving the first one? Time spent on the project? Pages written?
Yes. All of the above.
And I will probably use Trello again like I did (and am still doing) here:
I learned a ton from beeminding my current endeavour and I am positive I can apply that to beeminding my master thesis:
Also I might beemind sending a short feedback mail to my professor every week, just telling them what I did. Because being held accountable will hopefully make me stay focused more easily. I have a tendency to get super creative with big projects like that and then I add ridiculous things and go way overboard and it would probably be a good idea to curb that.
Talking and having feedback with someone else seems like a really good idea. You could even introduce him to Beeminder and talk about this goal of one report a week (or something similar).
Oh I did. He concluded it is too inflexible for his needs.
