Am I supposed to be shallow?

Having spent almost 30 hours reading different materials about Excellence models, I come to the conclusion that's not possible to gain a "profound knowledge" in this field for this time. Every particular subject could be a PhD thesis. Moreover, not having a more or less strict guideline I had to spend a considerable amount of time either on sorting the information, or to structuring it.

However, now I’ve got some knowledge connected with Excellence models. But I am prone to consider it as a quite superficial one. Several things really disturb me due to this:
1) Is the level I’ve reached enough in term of course requirements?
2) Have I reached the level that I had to?
3) Is it going to be less stressful after a while?

Probably, since the module haven’t officially started yet, all my concerns are not serious, but I am really afraid to be shallow.

About time management

Time management is crucial, yes, I've learnt it.

However, what I am thinking about the time management at the moment is that I really need lots of time to think about it – to realize what are the most valuable task are, to organize my working time an so on…

Anyway, the time management is crucial, so I am going to spend some time to tune my time management sytem properly.

The very first one

This is my first entry and it won't be a big one. I'm just trying to realize how it works and what is possible here.

Anyway, as it was supposed, I can't help posting some impressions I have already had during my first week in Warwick Uni. I came here to study the MSc course Engineering Enterprise Excellence, or Triple E, that was my more than conscious choice – judging by the course structure, this is what I really would like to study. Having attended a first session with the course leader, I am even more encouraged than before coming here. The things he was saying really appeal to me, that is almost I was prone to think about what the learning process is.

The only one awkward thing, at least at the current moment, is how many different "techie" matters are involved in the process. Truth be told, I like it, but am affraid it a bit. However, hope everything will be ok after a while. I've been here only a week!
