A quick one

It’s important that i do this blog post and acknowledge a few key things with regard to my current research practice. I feel it will be a good way to round out this weekend and prepare myself for another week of good, old fashioned dedicated study ahead.

1 – Setting up a dedicated space for study and leaving it so for a number of days (for study purposes only) works really well.

2 – Having a friend (or more than one) to join you there helps even more so. You can keep each other in line and focus on the task at hand – but also offer each other support and inspiration in times of doubt and fatigue.

3 – Achievable daily goals. Setting these before your day of study starts guarantees that feeling of relief when you look back on the day of research you have engaged in and know you’ve achieved what you wanted to.

4 (and my final point) – Do not EVER spend nights staying up until 5 o’clock in the morning studying. The next few days (particularly submission day and the following weekend) become the epitome of the hour-by-hour struggle. On that note, GOODNIGHT!

See you again soon after some rest in the coming week of research
