Meet Deadlines While You Do a Great Thesis

You are on your way to get your PhD degree and have finally reached the stage at which you are expected to do a thesis and submit it on time. While you may have a grip on your topic and may have all the information to support your study and all the skills to formulate an outstanding thesis, but it all fails if you are not able t keep up with dates and deadlines. Here are simple measures to keep up.

Make a timeline: Chart out a sheet that will clearly show you the number of days you have and jot down all the tasks that you need to complete. Highlight the time you have for completing each task and make sure to keep the timeline a practical one. You need to realise your own power to work so that you can create realistic goals for yourself.

Avoid distractions: The latest movie release and good restaurant by the corner of your street, the amazing book you were waiting to read and many more reasons will try to pull you out of your concentration, but once you get hold of your focus, nothing will stop you from meeting targeted dates.

Be strict with yourself: When you are making a study for your thesis, you may come across a lot of information that may be interesting but of no use to your present work. Use the bookmark in such cases, go back to it later but make sure you don’t use precious thesis time for things that don’t help in the job.

Make to do lists: While long term goals and deadlines will help the project on the whole, it is also important to take one day at a time and make sure you achieve smaller goals. Write down a to-do list and strike out each task as it is done, you will be surprised to see how much you achieved in a day!
