In order to accomplish this goal, I determined I’d have to take 30-40 units per semester, when the average student took 12-15 units. It became immediately obvious that I’d have to manage my time extremely well if I wanted to pull this off.
That’s an understatement. I’m not sure that just anyone could pull this off, but Steve claims he did (and I really don’t have any way of proving one way or the other).
Regardless, there are some really good time principles in this article. Definitely worth a read.
