How an experimental physicist lives

Rules

concious choice + frequent reflection

Concious choices include

  • Life goal: what do I want to do in my life?
  • Plan: What are the things that I need to do to achieve my life goal?
  • Schedule: How can I find enough time to do things that I need to do?

Things that prevent me from making concious choices include

  • stress due to the piling-up of failed plans. I did not realize that failure is normal and I did not have good ways to make it work.
  • weak mentality

Frequent reflection requires

  • identify measurables that
  • time every work
  • no work after 5:30
