A Calendar to Help Stay Motivated

    I'm getting my PhD in Education. I recommend you seriously think about why you want a PhD and how you will use it when you finish.

    Congrats on getting that draft done (and even a bit ahead of schedule, it looks like?)... that has to lead to some satisfaction. I do echo your advice about knowing WHY you are seeking a PhD, and what you want to do with it when you are done. There is no insurance of a job or better money for many doctoral programs these days, and you should have a concrete plan in place. It's a heck of a lot of work. Good luck with finishing yours!

    It is very convenient to see on the calendar precise and important terms of what you need to do because it helps to become more disciplined.
