Consistency Matters

I didn't post anything last week, which means consistency has been broken. There's a need to reflect the task management skills, otherwise I'm very likely to driving the wrong road

Priority changes.
A good exercise would be to list the priorities down everyday and assign reasonable time to the tasks. Then never second-doubt. 100% focusing on the task when doing it. Priority changes from time to time.  Human minds are single-threaded, thus, we'll need to keep focused when doing one particular task.

Be Grateful.
I received the confirmation from NOC Israel that I got admitted by the programme and I'm heading to Israel next Jan:-) Thanks a lot for Prof.Ben and Karl's help. Ultimately, it might be a plan from God. Thanks every one.

The additional interview from Google went well, however, I didn't get the winter intern opportunity this time. Though it's a bit too greedy to ask for too much, I still feel a bit sad after informed that I didn't get the chance. Everything happens for a reason. One good explanation for the delay of response is that I'm still not ready for it, it's not the right timing to go. 不以物喜,不以己悲。Be prepared, opportunities will come along the way.

Justify the reason for staying late.
Unexpectedly, I stayed very late these two weeks. I normally went bed before 1:00am. But these two weeks, I stayed until 2-3am, sometimes even later than 3am. Part of the reason was to prepare for the phone interviews. But it becomes a kind of habit to do things late at night, even when I am already very tired. That's not good, at least for my bio clock.

Do more exercise.
Last week, two of my friends mentioned that I'm getting fatter. Yes, I swam less frequent last week and I went for food in a less organized manner. Need to keep a healthy lifestyle.

One friend also suggests that I probably need to buy a new school bag and some nice shirts. A good look would be important, too. On one hand,it helps myself feel more confident; on another hand, it makes other people more willing to be with me.
