I am doing an essay these days. One crucial step is reading and note making. I made notes about key points in every material. When I started to write the essay, I found the notes are not strong enough to support writing. one problem is that I did not organise the notes. I find that it would be more convenient if I organise notes according to contents rather than to sources. For instance, I should have put contents about the features of bureaucracy together. I will take notes in this way next time.

I am doing an essay these days. I schedule the process like ten days for reading, ten days for first draft. I found it is not effective. There were many contingencies which made the schedule impractical. Another problem is how to further arrange actions in each step. For instance, I have problem predicting how long it would take to finish the second sub-question.
Another problem is about determination. Sometimes, I wrote down a plan for next day. It turned out that I failed to follow the plan.
