Well, I have been starting habits of self studying (for the purpose of self improvement) and was making some progress (two months so far). However, one thing I'm not able to do well is blog about my progress learning.
The situation for me is usually like this on weekdays:
- I study before and after work when I reach home
- About 30 mins before sleep time, I decide to blog.
But my mind tells me that by blogging, I will lose 1 study session, thus "slowing" my learning progress. Even though I'm going to blog about what I have learnt for the day, which can act as a review as well as getting public feedback (if any for a hardly known blog), it still; feels like lost time. So instead I tend to study more and sleep.
So how useful is blogging about ones' learning as compared to using it as 1 more study session? What kind of return on investment is there that I might be missing in my cost-benefit analysis?
