Recognize the intensity and importance of what you are doing

This is another post in response to Audrey who asked for advice for students who still have several weeks of classes remaining (or I would add, are working through the entire summer). I think that when we have been working at something for an extended period of time, we can lose sight of just how much we have already accomplished and even the significance of the endeavor.

As you work to maintain your motivation, reflect on all that you have accomplished. Whether you have just finished the first class of a master's program or the third year of a doctoral program, you have achieved, you are progressing through a graduate program and this is no easy task. Moreover, going to school as an adult, balancing school with family and work, is a significant commitment and one worth recognition.

Your pursuit of education is important and intense, and you are doing it! Bravo!

Cheering you on in your work!
