On last week, I received feedback on the prospectus. My chair suggested further development in two sections; theoretical framework and analytical strategy. This feedback was very minimal in comparison to the amount of sections in the prospectus. I am proud of myself in what I have developed so far. I took two days to research more information about what I needed to add to the sections. The section I dreaded the most was the analytical strategy. This section discusses the ways I plan to organize and analyze the results obtained from my research. I do not like the analysis part of research; however, I must become knowledgeable in this area. So, I took a few days to get an understanding of which analysis is best for my research and then I submitted the prospectus for a second review.
Sometimes in life we are faced with things we do not like or lack much knowledge about. Our first response should not be to bypass it or move through it nonchalantly. We should make the effort to search the matter out and gain an understanding about it. This helps us to improve our journey through it and get the best out of it. If we fail to do this at the beginning, the end process may not look so well. Or we may have to travel that way again. For instance, if I do not get a basic understanding of the analytical process now, I will experience many challenges. When the time comes for me to analyze the data, I may prolong the process for completing my dissertation or analyze the data wrong. So, I choose to gather as much information I can now to make the journey down the road a little smoother.
As always, I am excited to share my dissertation journey with you. I ask that you share this blog with someone else. We all are going through some type of journey and this might be the encouragement you or that person need to go a litter further. Let’s encounter this life changing experience together!
