It has been found that the researchers generally fed up while doing their Phd. There may be several reason for the same . Through this video I would like to through a light on these points which may help/ motivate the researchers to carry on with their Phd never look backward.
Hope you like this video.
Thinking positively is usually the first step to achieving your goals and it might help to know that at some time most researchers have faced and overcome difficulties such as the following:
Lack of motivation
A doctorate is a long project so your motivation will dip and peak along the way. Set yourself some short-term tasks when lacking motivation so that you can start to make progress again. Identify what motivates you and give yourself regular rewards. It is easier to motivate yourself if you know where you are headed so plan your research project and keep track of milestones achieved.
Lack of self-confidence
Doing a doctorate can be highly exposing. Be aware of your level of self-confidence and self-belief. If it drops, try to boost your confidence by:
seeking positive feedback
acknowledging your achievements so far
taking stock of your competencies
stretching yourself by trying out new things.
If your lack of confidence is seriously affecting your ability to function then seek advice and professional help.
Poor time management
Try and spend time planning, make sure you are devoting an appropriate amount of time to the tasks you are undertaking and then review how things are going. If you are not achieving your goals think about why and make a change. More advice on time management is available.
Lack of focus or direction
If you feel that your research is drifting, refocus on your main objectives.
Discuss with your supervisor where you think the project is going
Rewrite your research proposal to help you articulate what the project is supposed to be about
Rework your project plan to try and give you a clearer idea about what to do next and how it fits into the big picture
Take a short break as you may just be bogged down with detail
Doing a doctorate can be lonely and isolating. Try to take opportunities to build up your support network.
Are you using all of your key contacts enough?
Find out if your department offers a mentoring scheme. If it does not, you can ask a more senior researcher whether they would be willing to give you some help and advice.
Try and work in teams if possible.
Improve your relationship with your supervisor.
Stuck in your comfort zone
Beware of only doing things that you are comfortable doing and know you are fully capable of doing. This is known as your comfort zone and tends to be highly limiting. Try continually to stretch yourself to ensure that you keep learning, for example by volunteering for something that you don’t see as one of your strengths.
Fear of failure/taking risks
You can learn more from your failures than successes: they are often catalysts for positive change in the medium/long term. Don’t take it personally. Remember that you are training to be a researcher. Understand what is expected of you and know where you can find support.
