Students doing their postgraduate and doctoral degrees work and research very hard. Writing a dissertation and completing it within the given deadline is one of the most challenging tasks faced by these students. Even the most disinterested ones find the heavy cloud looming in their heads regarding completion of their dissertations on time. There is no other option if they want to get their degrees. Writing a dissertation is a difficult process per se for them and when it is combined with a deadline, their misery increases. Being emotionally prepared beforehand helps them grow patience and plan accordingly. They must reckon that they are about to embark on a mammoth task, which can take more than two years. Such a task allows them to be with them and consumes much of their time.
Students must plan as per their requirements. They should avoid anxiety and improve their time management and managerial skills. Completing a dissertation should not be considered a single task but needs to be divided into a series of tasks. Finishing each task on time is very essential for finishing the whole project. Achieving an initial target word count of five hundred words daily is more than decent to maintain the flow of writing and finish the dissertation on time. Gradually, as more time passes, they can raise their daily targets and attempt achieving the same. Motivation from friends and family members plays a huge role in speeding up their process of writing.
Focusing on each and every series of a task is more important than focusing as a whole. It is a well-known fact that a task can be completed on time only if its series are completed one by one. When students suffer from writer’s block and can’t proceed ahead, penning down their academic ideas ( as and when they pop in their heads ) is highly advisable. It helps them overcome the block and write something creative.
