At the beginning of the year, I started my doctorate. This massive thing that’s going to consume my life for the next (hopefully) three years. But I feel like my organisation process is, well, ratshit.
So, some questions for my readers, whether you have a doctorate, or you’re just super organised:
1. What was your topic?
2. What was your filing system for studies and books?
3. How did you keep track of your new knowledge? I’ve got loads of notebooks, studies with notes in the margins, underlined bits, word docs, and at the moment it all relies on me remembering what I’ve read. If we built a city on my short-term memory, it would be structurally unsound.
4. Any other advice?
