Divide your thesis into defined steps
Writing a thesis is a process with well-defined steps
The details of each step will be slightly different one second from each class. your field, but for most thesis writers, the steps are, first, brainstorming, second, data editing and analysis, and third, refinement.
2 Track your progress
I would really like to know more about this particular one. If you don’t keep track of what you’re doing, your brain will trick you into doing nothing in the first place (my brain obviously did that to me, such a rebel!). Additionally, not tracking your progress will lead to boredom, which will lead to procrastination. If you track your progress, you can check at the end of the day which article/book you have read and what you have written. This will motivate you to work harder the next day. I didn’t keep track of what I was doing when I was writing my master’s thesis and it was chaos – not the nice kind of chaos but the ugly! Don’t be like me, be smarter.
Did I edit too much? Of course I did. I regret that? Of course I can! It’s like going into a black hole, you can’t go back anyway, can you? Incidentally, over-editing means going back to the same paragraph over and over again, changing words, quoting, adding sentences, deleting others. It’s very insightful and I haven’t learned it until now while writing my PhD. thesis, it saves me a lot of time and effort. In addition, after defending your thesis, you must make certain modifications recommended by the scientific committee. When you start writing, don’t go back to edit points, if you feel like editing – which of course you will – highlight the passage/phrase/words or whatever you want to edit and leave a comment like this for you.
he won’t forget it. Once done, move on to the next point. You’ll have plenty of time to edit if you start early.
Give yourself periods of time
It’s good to be a diligent seeker, but after all, you have to know your limits and treat yourself well. You may be under time constraint and enormous pressure to complete your thesis according to your scholarship or degree plan. However, health comes first. Don’t force yourself to run to the finish line when you know you’re about to pass out. It’s not worth it in the end. If you can’t solve a problem, put it aside for a while and take the time to enjoy something else. You will not work with any motivation.
Patterns are everywhere but it’s hard to see them when you’re angry. Visiting your friends’ clams can fill your tank of motivation dry. It helps you understand that you too want to be there, proudly speaking about what you have discovered in your thesis research. If they can do it, why can’t you?
