Week 45: Non-productive

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

I haven’t achieved any of my goals for Week 45! I hit a wall whenever I try to demonstrate that my methodology section meets my research objectives exactly. My supervisor has told me that this can be one of the biggest challenges for any researcher. That may be true, but I need to overcome it before I kick off the main data collection in January, which is coming soon!

Things I have done this week are reading research papers and articles on thesis writing tips, organising my Evernote and jotting down my thoughts and ideas, although I have not produced anything. I also met up with two friends for meals and attended a research seminar, which led to meaningful discussions and gave me some more ideas.

This seems like something I can do: try to write for just a couple of hours a day, Monday to Friday, through the year. I am going to try this over Week 46 and see how I get on!

My achievements in Week 45:

  • Organised Evernote

Goals for Week 46:

  • Define the criteria for the data collection
  • Edit Chapters 1 and 3
  • Read materials on case study approach
