is one of the most painful experiences you may have while working on your dissertation.
If often feels like you are doing it all alone. The only remedy for isolation
is forming strategic connections.
advise dissertation writers to get and stay connected with others who share the
same interests. Rather than withdrawing to your ivory tower to write in isolation,
join in your profession. Identify with other emerging scholars, present your research
at every opportunity, attend conferences, subscribe to the important professional
publications. Making connections rather than severing them to get this done may
seem counterintuitive at first. But this is an endurance event, and you will need
this safety net to keep going and to finish.
a Life Too
is no point in finishing your dissertation and losing everything else in your
life. I suggest you sit down and write down all the things that are really
important in your life (e.g. family, friends, significant other person (SOP),
health, fun, etc.) Then assess your current level of satisfaction with each
of these. Now you are in a position to write down your commitment
for each area of your life and follow-through by setting the specific goals necessary
for achieving your commitments. Good luck!
