There are only 24 hours in a day

There are so many things I want to do. I want to do research and take all the exciting courses. But last week, I realized that it is just not possible to do that.

The following list contains some of the things that I want to do during the first half of 2021. The bold parts are some of the things that I have decided to do. 

  • Supervise Master’s thesis
  • Take a WASP course
  • Take a course in Teaching for Higher Education
  • Do research
  • Take a course in Cloud computing
  • Take a course in Introduction to BCI
  • Do teaching
  • Follow a course in Adaptive control
  • Follow a course in Robust control
  • Follow a course in Convex Large scale optimization
  • Self-studies of a course in Transformations
  • Spring school for BCI
  • Self-studies of course in Mathematics for Machine Learning

It is not important what I have chosen to do and what I have not. The important thing is that I come to the realization that I can’t do everything! One of my supervisors gave me the advice to make a brief yearly schedule to get an overview of my plans. Doing that, I realized that my plan is impossible. I have to remove something. 

Now, when I have removed quite a lot, I don’t have this constant pressure looming over me. And I’m pretty sure that is a good thing. Go Me!
