“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” (Carl Rogers)

Maintaining the flow of doctoral research as a part-timer

The single biggest issue is of course time. Or, rather, I CAN make time available - I have weekends and evenenings and holidays. The problem is one of maintaining a flow of work when my study sessions are often broken up by life and work. I do a couple of really good days of work at the weekend and then I may not get back to it for a couple of weeks, by which time I've pretty much lost the flow of what I was doing. Which is where this blog now comes in. I plan - and I hope I will stick to it - to keep a record of everything I've done and everything I need to do after every significant doctoral work session or supervision etc. Starting in the next post, I will regularly report on What's done and What's to do...
