We hope that this October series on writing a first-draft of your dissertation has been helpful. We are, by no means, done. We have a couple more tips and tricks to share before the month is out.
However, to thank all of our followers and to help you write, or revise, your draft we have a little gift for you.
Download and print this little beauty to help with your productivity.
There are three tasks because that seems to be an optimal amount for productivity.
We ask you to write down the task and commit to a time. Then, we ask you to make a contingency plan for your top three to-dos.
For instance, I might plan to grade during my office hour at 11:00 a.m. However, in case something disrupts that plan then I have a contingency plan to grade for an hour after I teach, from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. in my office.
