Spring Break Challenge (March 19-26, 2006)

If you are wondering if you should try and get anything accomplished over the break, my answer is YES!!!!

Let's take a page from Gina Hiatt, Ph.D.'s book and challenge ourselves to get something accomplished over Spring Break. You will be surprise what you can get done in just one week. Even if you're not on Spring Break, join us--don't do it alone!

I'd like to offer a Spring Break challenge to anyone who would like to take me up on it.

Post what you'd like to work on (if anything) over the break, and the maximum amount of time you would like to spend on it daily.

Each day you should do "something" to move your dissertation forward. Some items can take as little as 15 minutes to be completed.

Please be realistic by trying to keep your time limit reasonable and low unless you're trying to defend in April/May or might have a more pressing deadline.

You can check into this post either daily or just at the end of the challenge (March 26, 2006) to let us know how well you were able to accomplished your goals. Feel free to share with us what problems you had or just check in to encourage or commiserate with others.

Post Summary:

What will you work on?

How much time will you spend daily working on it?

Tell us how much progress you are making, or problems you are having

All comments posted on this blog will be forwarded to my email. You are invited to correspond with each other for encouragement and support. I will post, comment, and encourage you along the way. Ready, Set, Go!

Remember a Good Dissertation is a DONE Dissertation
