Illusion of Time

When you thought, you have all the time in the world, do you perform better? Or you have this illusion that there’ll always be tomorrow…

I thought that I have no such illusion, but deep down that’s just what’s happening, hence the lack of momentum. Worst, quality writing takes time, sometimes it comes in an instant, sometimes it takes days. You need to understand what you’re reading, put them in context of your research and tries to design them in the most accurate, scholarly words possible, avoiding plagiarism along the way. It is painstakingly exhausting. Plus of course, when there’s a whole lot of other things you’d rather do, than reading, thinking and wrting!

Writing the theses, requires a balance of quotations, paraphrases and summaries with my own fresh ‘visions’. It’s not suppose to be a mere repeatation of the idea of others that I stich together with a few sentence of my own.

I think, I work faster when there’s more things to do, from several perspectives, that is. Phd and Phd and Phd are just one perspective. Anyway, my supervisor relayed that whatever the task is, you must always multiply the time by 3. That way, you’ll know that there’s no such thing as ‘there’s always be tomorrow’.
