Rationale for this Project


Summary of Progress during 18Q4 - 19Q3
  1. I have spent 6.5 hours YTD on this Project, or related work, where for "YTD" - Year to Date - I mean the (academic) year that commenced in October 2018). That's 24.9% of the planned effort. Overall, 0.3% of my Project effort YTD has been directed towards this project.
  2. Sadly, I only managed ¼ of the tiny allocation to this project, and none of that was on my primary task list.
  3. YTD Activity3
    Consciousness (Total Hours = 6.5)
  4. Progress (if any) in the current quarter can be obtained from the relevant section of my Summary Task List4, and YTD in the current & future “automatic” editions of this report.
