One of the best things I learnt on this trip is that it doesn’t take that long to do a study. Sure, some will take an hour or two, but by setting a time limit (we were given 30 mins), its better to do four 30 minute studies of something than slave away at one thing for 2 hrs. Of course, nothing wrong with a 2 hr study but not setting a time limit makes us procrastinate because in our minds we think, “That’s going to take me a couple of hours and I don’t have time today. I’ll do it tomorrow.”
We, the students, found it a horrendous task in the beginning but Thierry insisted. And later on, I really started to see the value of it. If I can just dedicate 30 mins a day to do one study, even if its crappy, it will still be better than nothing.
