It’s Tuesday. When you are writing your dissertation everyday seems just like the day before. However, when you make a schedule everyday seems like progress. Everyday you should be able to cross something off your to-do list. If you can’t cross something off it means that you have not broken your tasks down small enough. For example, a dreaded task that might take 4 hours can be broken down into four 1 hour tasks. These one hour tasks can be broken down further into 15 min tasks. If you dread reading a journal article; you can break the process down into 15 minute increments. You can take 15 minutes to download the article and put the bibliographic information into your reference database, You can take 15 minutes to read the introduction, and find the research question. Fifteen minutes to read and take notes on the methodology. You get the point. What can you cross of your list tonight?
