Busy End and Messy Beginning

The couple of weeks before Christmas, then my kids were home for the holidays, followed by a very tough period at work where three major projects have come alive together, have made the end of 2012 a very challenging time.  Just when I was connecting the dots and putting in place a map to build my knowledge onto, I am physically and mentally too busy to read.  The first two weeks of January have not been any better – in fact they’ve been worse.  I’m writing this in Dubai having spent most of the day responding to emails after a long day of presentations in nearby Sharjah.  I am drained and am surprised I have the energy to write this post (recovering from a cold too).  It must be the guilt of not reading for three weeks – and indeed not having any conference call contact with my supervisors.

I must (and will) take back control very soon.  I need to re-start the weekly calls and more importantly go back to my reading (and some writing). I will also book some time away from the office and away from family and friends… a PhD holiday of 100% focus on nothing other than my research… It’s time to sleep at the university library.
