Writing Your Thesis Or Dissertation

How To Get Started And Organize

Writing Your Thesis or Dissertation

Academic Rewards

As a student of higher education, I’m often asked for help in writing a Master’s Thesis or Doctoral Dissertation. At the end of March I will be discussing this very topic with students of the University of Metaphysics and the University of Sedona. Being a blogger, getting my thoughts down on paper tends to lead to writing an article here on Reflections. So let me share what I’ve learned and what I tell my students who are facing these projects. 

Get Your Requirements:
One of the hardest things about starting a writing project is getting motivated when you don’t know where to start. Sometimes the best thing to do is simply put the steps into motion and get ready. Each University system has its own requirements for the format of your thesis or dissertation. Most provide a template or written instructions. So step one, find out what’s required for your institution.

With your instructions in hand, conduct a search online for completed and approved essays from others in your University system. Seeing how someone else “did it” can be a great example for what you need to do. Now I’m not saying plagiarize their work! All you’re doing is looking for how they formatted their essay and what they put in each required section as an example for what you will need to cover. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The World

The World

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

If you can see the beauty in the world, why can’t you see the beauty in you? Don’t focus on the negative. Alter your vision of self and be proud of who you are. Work change what you don’t like and become the best you that you can be. No one else can do it, but you.

Additional Insight:

Dressing ‘down’ in sweats and ratty t-shirt is not going to improve your vision of self. Whether the cloths are your physical appearance or your inner character, you are the one who determines what the world sees. It’s a reflection of how you feel about the image you reflect to the world. Stop putting yourself down, stop complaining about how you look, feel or act and change it. You’re the only one who can. The healing starts today! But you have to want it to begin and accept the process of change.

If you don’t like something about you, then you are the one who can change it. Begin your healing today.
