ACCOUNTABILITY partner 999 Views

Over the years, I have realized the necessary condition to crack CSE. Look closely. Read between the lines. It is a necessary condition, and not a sufficient one. 

To clarify, warm water is a necessary condition for tropical cyclone. But, it can't be a sufficient condition i.e. they don't guarantee cyclones. Similarly, there is no guarantee to success in CSE. 

The necessary condition is Accountability. Whom should you be accountable? YOU, my friend. You must be accountable to your goals and aspirations. Daily accountability legitimizes your sacrifices so far. 

We live in uncertain times. Our prep ecosystem has been dismantled. Libraries are mostly shut. And, as a consequence, we have been slacking off. It is time to pick ourselves from the dust. Thus, I started a thread for the same. The best part of CSE is the rich community we inherit. 
So, as a community we shall hold each other accountable with our daily targets and progress that follows in. Remember, what can't be measured, can never be improved.

Hey Piyush, I feel your pain. I am yet to give my first attempt. So, I am yet to experience such set of emotions. But, all power to you. I can recommend you to one of my mentors from studygang.

Unfortunately, I am not making to the prelims. However, I won't stop here. There is little difference that I can make to my 'joblessness' in the last 8 months. For some, it might seem irrational.
