Stay the course, get it done!
The prep work, the qualifying exams, the comprehensive exams, maybe even the defense of your dissertation proposal…
And there, on the not too distant horizon, glimmers that long-awaited Ph.D.
You’ve come so far, and it’s such a relief to have classes and comprehensive exams behind you.
But did you know that one of the primary points at which individuals exit the academic pipeline that runs from that first day of graduate school to obtaining tenure is right where you are now?
This is because so many graduate students fail to realize that that last part of the journey is often the most difficult part. You no longer have the built-in accountability of course deadlines that used to insure that papers got written. Rather, you must find your own ways of holding yourself accountable and keeping your writing on track. And that’s where a coach can help.
