How I Did It-Structured Motivation

August 4, 2009

Today is my baby’s birthday and it is a great day. It is also the day that I signed the letter of intent at my new school. I didn’t interview with my principal, as others normally would. I went in, signed it and that was it. I want the structure of having this job to motivate me to keep moving, but realistically am I kidding myself? So many dissertators have a hard time finishing while trying to juggle a full load. One thing I do know is that I can’t stop now. Anything that keeps me from moving forward will pass. I just have to commit to starting back up again.

After the party, I went to the diner up the street to read the articles for the next section so that I can keep it moving. I was able to read two articles and take notes on them at the diner. It was so loud and smoky that I’m surprised I could  focus.





To talk to me privately about this or any other dissertation-related issue, email me.
