How to overcome writer’s block in your PhD?

Writer’s block can significantly delay, or even derail, your research project. Find out about the tools that can help you overcome writer’s block!

“If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”

Stephen King

Do you enjoy writing?

I noted that many researchers usually consider writing as the least exciting part of doing research, usually dedicating too little time to this important activity in their research project.

After all, you’ve done your experiments or derived a new mathematical model that helps to solve a specific challenge.

This is truly the most electrifying part of your work as you’ve pushed the boundary of knowledge. Well done!

But what’s the actual value of your discovery if you don’t share it with others?

Although there are many ways to share your research (remember to check out our free ebook!), writing down your research is still the main way to do so.

What are SMART goals and how to use them in your research?

Success is a journey, not a destination. How to set SMART goals for your research project to successfully deliver your PhD and enjoy the process.

Have you ever missed a deadline or struggled to hand in your work on time? 

Did you promise yourself that you were going to make it this time, yet it happened again? After all, you planned to complete the chapter of your thesis or send the paper for review to the journal. 

Yet, regardless of your willingness to do so, you didn’t do it. Another week has passed, and you feel like you’re in the exact same place as a week ago? Uncertainty of research doesn’t make it easier, does it?

I feel for you! It happened to me, too – it was so frustrating when I had to pull an all-nighter to submit my work on time! 

That’s why in this article, I’m going to teach you how to use SMART goals in your research project and adjust them to your needs. 

I’m confident that this will help you manage your work better and meet your deadlines, especially those you set yourself!
