“3 Shifts Method” to study and work from home

[This could also be applied to authoring, writing articles/doing full-time research, or preparing a submission to an academic journal]. 1. Early morning -> early afternoon Most focused; complete assignments in class or at a “worksite” No distractions, (not even phone calls unless emergency or on 5-minute break to talk to family, e.g.).

Music profile: Flamenco

There are a lot of different study techniques. Background music often works for me. Visiting Spain in 2008 introduced me to the music genre of Flamenco.

Studying and refreshing the material is definitely progressive…and different from studying for traditional law school classes – even the most complex ones. Having a big monthly calendar has helped. I cross off days…

“New Things” & first two weeks

These posts will be called “New Things.” One of my goals outside of studying is to work on practicing my music and…
