Life always has a habit of derailing people from their course. Things happen; free time is precious and sometimes non-existent; lack of motivation to keep up with everything…

There can be a million reasons why we don’t get things done.

I always felt that if there is something you love and wish for with all your might, no matter how many times you get derailed from achieving your goal, you will find your way back to it.

This is how I fell, after years of ignoring anything related to Japanese.

Instead of feeling bummed out, for losing so many years of precious time, not working on achieving this dream of mine, I feel like now is a good time to get back and immerse myself in the eternal struggle of hiragana, katakana and kanji.

After all, I got a Goku tattoo after 14 years of setting my mind on it…

I only have one concern: time.

I’ve been racking my brains out to figure the best way to get this done. I don’t need a planner, or things like that, I just need to be realistic about my free time during the week and in the weekend.

Would studying only during the weekend be the best option? Should I set aside a few hours during the week?

The best course of action for me would be this:

  • One hour, in the evening, three days per week.
  • 4 hours each Saturday and Sunday.

I am going to give it a try for the entire month of January, to see how things evolve. I want to see if I can keep up with this, or if I need to make changes.

I will keep track of it, just to be sure. I will give it my best try and hope for the best.
