Dissertation: the Road to Calvary or Enjoyable Journey?
When people hear about the need to write their final project they can say nothing besides “Oh! How I will cope with all this?” Indeed, dissertation editing and writing is a life test, but it is a question whether it is so horrible as we used to see it. The ample of educational materials say about the significance of this turning point in the student’s life to promote a serious and responsible approach to this process. It is quite logically; it would be strange if the professors claim “Take it easy, the dissertation is not serious.” We consider that it is high time to find the golden middle between these two extremes and shift the accents from the formal approach to motivated one.
Why positioning and self-adjusting matter?
Well-known and verified in practice proverb says: A good beginning is half the battle. There is a question “Where is the beginning of dissertation writing process?” We guess everyone agrees that it is in the human mind. An extended period before we write the first word we are thinking about the area of investigation, examine our abilities and the sphere of interest, choose the people whose assistance we are going to ask, etc. As a rule, this endless list of tasks frightens us and instills the feeling of self-doubt. All our assumed worries certainly will be reflected in further work and especially our health even when they do not become real. Is not it better to start from inspiration, expectations and pleasant anticipation? This task is the most complicated across all the process, but we show you the way to change your perception and start as it should be.
Change the initial essence of the work
Let’s take the journey as the most enjoyable experience in our life. Is it less complicated than dissertation writing? You should plan a vacation for the time suitable for all family members, choose an interesting tourist destination, buy the tickets, book the hotel, plan your leisure, decide to whom you leave your pets (home plants or something other), etc. This list is as endless as the list of task needed to be done for submitting the dissertation, but we undertake all this with incredible satisfaction. Why? Because we have higher motivation – the expectations to have a nice adventure soon. What keeps us from the same attitude to dissertation writing? Nothing, you should just see the benefits of the process.
Area of investigation is your interesting tourist destination!
During the travel, you investigate something new and interesting. Treat the question of your dissertation as incredible discovery even more meaningful than a tourist one. When you travel you discover things or phenomena were found by someone, your dissertation will be your individual invention!
Writing dissertation bring you a lot of “co-travelers”!
Stop thinking that time you spend on writing deprives you of communication with friends! On the contrary, for your conceptual conversation, gathering data and authoritative thoughts you constantly will be in the search for interesting and experienced persons.
Difficulties are just adventure
Does climbing a mountain take fewer efforts than creating dissertation topic, writing the proposal or making a literature review? No, and it is equally rewarded. Just feel the feeling of victory; it should motivate you since the victory over yourself can be compared to anything other.
Methodology is your “way of moving”
Are you afraid to fly by airplanes? Go by car, boat, bicycle, etc. The same with choosing methodology: use those scientific tools you are familiar with.
The list of analogies and metaphors could be continued and continued. The central idea we tried to express: you should look for the motivation everywhere. It is possible and extremely needed. For the skeptics, we should say that the material doesn’t try to undermine the dissertation as a scientific achievement, but, vice versa, to endow the process with the higher idea than just routine work.
