January is the time for take-charge measures.
Weight loss organizations market heavily in January. Gyms offer great deals.
E-newsletters multiply, magazines bulge with tips to make this year different, and Oprah offers all of us a way to control our weight.
It makes sense to take advantage of the season, the urge, the energy in the air, in your head, in your body. Use that challenge to your advantage.
Channel it into your dissertation.
You hear the call to join dissertation groups, to buddy-up, to hire a coach. If you were ever going to sign up for a dissertation boot camp, now could be the time.
A new dissertation coaching client, who long ago stopped taking graduate classes, but, alas, still pays tuition, has decided that she’s in a no-kidding, no-fooling mode. She paid her tuition for the current winter term. But that’s the last time. She has decided that she will defend in April.
Another new dissertation coaching client who for a year had been knocked off her stride by a negative reaction to a proposal has now jumped back into the race.
Use the January fever as a resource. Make your move now.
If you’re interested in dissertation groups or boot camps, I’d like to hear from you. What do you need? What would you do if something were available?

You’re in my thoughts.
Until next time,
