the dissertation is a 4 letter word
i'm new, and need a miracle to finish the dissertation. i have been struggling with it daily for such a long time, and i keep hoping to find some magic tip to make me motivated. i have so many reasons to want to be done, that it boggles my mind that i could procrastinate and waste so much of my precious time when i should be focusing and finishing. of course, i realize that procrastinating make me hate myself and being productive is such a good feeling. again, it boggles my mind that i cant just realize that and do the work. besides the fact that i'm probably lazy, i do believe that i must be a compulsive procrastinator, because how else can you explain the fact that there are real repercussions if i dont finish, like wasting years of my life. my only saving grace is that i may be ahead of all my colleagues who i started with, so that is validating, that it is not just me who procrastinates the dissertation, but this is just truly so hard. i do also struggle with self control related to food and shopping, but it's not something that is out of control, whereas the dissertation resistance is. i must focus and finish. i must. and so, i ask you, fellow procrastinators, please tell me how to use this website to be helpful to me and not to just be something else to waste time on. i want to make a committment to log in consistently and be accountable, and i'm hopeful, but the fact is that my track record, not so good. so, i truly hope that i can figure out a way to make this work. so, where do i start? thank you all!!!
