MOTIVATIONAL
THOUGHTS
TO HELPYOU FINISH
YOUR DISSERTATION
77
A lifetime membership in the
DOCTOR’S CLUB
can only be earned by
completing a dissertation.
But the dissertation process
can be challenging,
so it’s easy to become discouraged.
Every dissertation encounters
BARRIERS
you cannot control.
When you find these barriers
OVERWHELMING,
keep the following thoughts
in mind.
You are smart enough if you
made it this far, so it is
self-defeating to quit now.
11
Your Committee Members
want you to finish and succeed.
They agreed to work with you
because they believe in you.
22
You really do know what you are doing.
Even though you’ve never written a
dissertation before, you have probably
written five separate papers that have
all the elements of a dissertation, which
hopefully makes it feel less daunting.
33
You will get through
these barriers and
will have them as future
learning experiences.
44
You will have
this degree forever;
you just have to get it.
55
Writing and research skills can be
developed just like bicep muscles—
both can be made stronger
with the right conditioning.
66
You are only burned-out
because you were really
ON FIRE!
77
“If you are having trouble
getting your thesis on paper,
start by writing for just
15 MINUTES EVERY DAY.
Even if you complete just a few
sentences at the end of
15 minutes, it will add up.”
-Dr. John (Jack) D. Mayer
Department of Psychology
University of New Hampshire
A dissertation is no different
than any other big goal.
You’ve made it this far.
DON’T STOP NOW
regardless of your frustration level.
Learn how to successfully navigate
the dissertation process.

7 Motivational Thoughts to Help You Finish Your Dissertation

  • 2. A lifetime membership in the DOCTOR’S CLUB can only be earned by completing a dissertation. But the dissertation process can be challenging, so it’s easy to become discouraged.
  • 3. Every dissertation encounters BARRIERS you cannot control. When you find these barriers OVERWHELMING, keep the following thoughts in mind.
  • 4. You are smart enough if you made it this far, so it is self-defeating to quit now. 11
  • 5. Your Committee Members want you to finish and succeed. They agreed to work with you because they believe in you. 22
  • 6. You really do know what you are doing. Even though you’ve never written a dissertation before, you have probably written five separate papers that have all the elements of a dissertation, which hopefully makes it feel less daunting. 33
  • 7. You will get through these barriers and will have them as future learning experiences. 44
  • 8. You will have this degree forever; you just have to get it. 55
  • 9. Writing and research skills can be developed just like bicep muscles— both can be made stronger with the right conditioning. 66
  • 10. You are only burned-out because you were really ON FIRE! 77
  • 11. “If you are having trouble getting your thesis on paper, start by writing for just 15 MINUTES EVERY DAY. Even if you complete just a few sentences at the end of 15 minutes, it will add up.” -Dr. John (Jack) D. Mayer Department of Psychology University of New Hampshire
  • 12. A dissertation is no different than any other big goal. You’ve made it this far. DON’T STOP NOW regardless of your frustration level.
  • 13. Learn how to successfully navigate the dissertation process. bit.ly/FinishYourDissertation Flying paper imagery © Picsfive / iStockphoto Wiley is a registered trademark of John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
