Norp's blog

Hello Codeforces!

Today, after reflecting on the advice under my comments and putting them together, I learned one very good piece of advice that I will stick to moving forward. Today I finished the 1st thematic collection of problems, it was on the topic of arrays, maps, sets, etc. Again I tried to extract something useful from these problems, and began to notice that mostly brute force problems are often solved without much optimization (if I’m wrong, correct me). I need to do more to achieve the goal, because 1/4 of the way has already passed, and I have only reached 1100 rating (I lost it at the last competition :( ).

Plans for tomorrow:

Don't be lazy, try to finish the 2nd thematic collection of problems right away, prepare for the approaching Div1-2.

Till Tomorrow.....

Keep moving forward and ignore those people who downvote you.

    You got this! I'm glad you read our comments, because what is the use of posting these types of blogs without reading the comments? My opinion, if you have questions, ask. If you want to follow up on a comment, reply. You can get a lot better tips if you go with the Codeforces community helping you along the way than doing it alone.

    I'll try to send comments to your blogs when I think is appropriate. Good luck!

Have you implemented gooning into your routine? If not I highly suggest you do so.

Just an advice.

You don't have to publish a new blog every day to give an update about what you have done yesterday.

No one cares that. Rather you are giving others to demotivate you in the process.

Keep focus on your practice and avoid these silly attention-seeking tactics.

    I like seeing these blogs. He is on day 20 out of 80. How many people have given up before day 10? At least 90% of them. Let's see if he can make it all the way to day 80. Surely he will be pupil by then and perhaps even specialist.

I lost it at the last competition

It just indicates you don't have enough experience when problems are tough. Keep practicing, and solve at least one really hard for your current skill task per week to learn how to cope with overwhelming complexity (and have something to brag of course)
