There will be times in your PhD when it makes sense to do the deep work. Take those opportunities when you can.⁣

There are inevitably going to be times in your PhD where things move slowly, whether because of the stage of your PhD you’re at, or because of other commitments and responsibilities. ⁣

But similarly, there will be times where great strides are made. ⁣

There are certain stages of the PhD that require deep, sustained focus (the final stages of writing, for example), and there will also be times where your commitments and responsibilities give you the freedom and room to throw yourself into your thesis. ⁣

Take these opportunities when you can. Recognise when the hard work is needed, and when you are able to give it. ⁣

And when you, devote yourself to the task at hand. Capitalise on every ounce of productivity and energy, and make the most of the window. ⁣

For it is at these times that your input and effort truly matters, and when you’d be wise to drop everything and find deep, sustained focus. ⁣

Good luck and have a great week.
