UPDATES on two projects: lowering my expectations to a no-panic level :)

by Alex - Project Lady

 3. GRADUATE PHD THESIS PROJECT. Finish PhD thesis and graduate in June 2015. This is the big goal. First I have to pass my 3rd defence on 5th Jan 2015. I am absolutely not prepared. So I have to work a loooooot this week. I have to do so many things. Panic panic panic !!! (first posted on December 23rd, 2014) Updated on Jan 3rd, 2015, as I learned I have more time 3 more semesters to graduate, so I decided not to panic myself, I changed it to PhD thesis project as I want to finish the data collection & analysis & writing the first draft by the end of the year. Deadline Dec 31st, 2015.

5. BOOK JOURNAL PROJECT: Read 200 books in a year. I really am a fast reader and I will keep a journal too. (first posted on December 24th, 2014) Updated on Jan 3rd, 2015, 200 is too many 🙂 let’s make it 100 🙂

      You know how boring mgmt school is as a finance major 🙂 I studied business and economics (double major B.A.s) with a maths minor then I studied psychology B.A. and M.A. Now the mgmt phd. the most boring one among them. Many degrees and still not happy 🙂 I realized that I go to school just to keep my mind busy 🙂

        Finance is incredibly dry. You are a lot tougher than me 🙂

        What made you choose it?

        To me, it seemed that you were doing a Psychology PhD.

        My specialization area is Industrial Organizational Psyc. therefore Mgmt Org phd covers my thesis and studies. I am working on leadership & coaching & behavior modification & employee engagement & problem solving & performance enhancement & motivation etc.

        I have already a grad degree in Psyc. so mgmt phd wont hurt, on the contrary it is more prestigious. sad but true. Yep it was not a heart decision it was a very rational one 🙂 as my roots of decision making are coming from economics 🙂
