Love is on the Way

I am currently undertaking a PhD, part-time, and am at a somewhat advanced stage. I have been preparing journal articles for international publications along the way so that I can support the Thesis with published content. The greatest challenge I find is in actually commencing a new journal article. Once I have a framework in place and know the key message/s that I want to pursue, and actually start the article, things tend to flow somewhatl. My greatest challenge is that first…

Others are cagier or more reluctant. What strategies do we have for managing this array of different states in which people will arrive?

Much depends on what you ask them to do – and when. Timing is crucial. There may be an activity at the start to which as a…
