Thanksgiving celebration is over and it’s time to get back to writing even if we don’t want to.
Welcome back, though it is tempting to relax further, this is a friendly reminder to get back to work. Because we have set deadlines we should know what we are suppose to be doing today and how many days we have left until our defense and or graduation. If we practiced what we learned in the DH, we should know where we left off and what our thinking was at the time.
We should not have to re-familiarize ourselves with the dissertation again for the hundredth time. We should not be waiting for the enthusiasm and the motivation to kick us in gear either. By now, we know how to work on the dissertation w
hen we are still less than motivated to do so. And if all else fails set your timer and get 15 minutes in.
30 days and counting.…..3 days ago I activated my 30 trial of Nvivo 9; each day the computer tells me how many days I have left. Today, I am on day3 I have 27 left; the computer shows 27 days left. Seeing the number of days left as I get st
arted each day makes me work with a purpose and a goal. This means I have had 30 days to learn this software and analyze my data. Thus far, I have loaded the data thus far and code e
ach survey questions. My next task is to identify themes and code them. I realize that I cannot afford to waste a day. Joel Olsteen said this morning everyday is like vapor; you cannot get it back once it is gone. How many days do you have until graduation?
