I just realized yesterday that I am getting somewhat burnt out on this PhD. I am now close to the final 1/3 of the program, the hardest 1/3. After this research design class I have: 1. qualitative methods 2. statistics 3. quant methods 4. comps 5. planning for diss 6. diss 1 7. diss 2 8. diss 3 9. diss 4 I can definitely muster the will to plow through qual, stats, quant but I just don't know about the rest. There is not as much instant gratification in this pursuit as there was in the BSBA, BA, MBA, and CAGS I went through. Oh well. Soldier on.
