It’s a journey…

persistence

Read this today and it gave me encouragement to keep going with my research proposal…will visit this again when I’m writing my thesis 🙂 hahaha…

Scenario:  Preparing to do a high ropes obstacle course (where you’re doing an obstacle course in up in the trees with ropes supporting you to catch you if you fall)…

“This isn’t about finishing the course. This is about conquering your hesitancy, resistance and fear. These ropes holding you will only let you slightly drop if you miss the bar. Then they will catch, and you absolutely will not fall”

Progress over perfection…

Came across this gem just when I was wondering why it’s taking so long for me to finish this research proposal…

Progress over perfection is the key…this is a learning process and even professors have to put in drafts for review..and my supervisor reminded me that that’s what they are there for – to provide guidance and input on drafts so it doesn’t have to be perfect, nor are they expecting perfection, instead they should be working with you towards progress.

So, I’m going to continue making progress rather than try to get everything perfect and end up having no progress.
