Huge Leap Forward

It was a busy start to the week with preparations for a meeting and a whole day with clients in Reading.  The last few days have been wonderful.  The first time I really knew what I was doing with my writing and I was able to make a good start on the structure of my chapter as well as the headings.  Now it’s about filling in the right theories and presenting the relevant studies within the right headings.  Relatively simple but very time-consuming.

It has been great to be back at Imperial.  The library is well stocked with good internet coverage and comfortable working areas.  It’s also not very far by underground from where I live – which is a great bonus.  It’s going well.  I know I have a few business trips and engagements when I return.  I will take a week off in April to catch up with my family (I have seen very little of them) during the day and with my writing in the evenings. It’s probably the only empty slot I have left until the end of April when my literature review is due.

No-Study Weeks

From good to bad this week – but nothing unplanned.  A business trip, followed by a week’s training (with evening group work) left zero time for PhD.  Next week is another work trip – this time to London.  I will take a few days after including a weekend to get some serious work done.  I managed to get access (24 hours) to the library at my old university.  I should be able to spend some quality catch-up time if I stay behind after the meetings.
