I always say to my son, “if you start something, you have to finish it.” I applied this same principle to my studies.


In 2013/14, I went through a strenuous period at work which meant I had to move my focus away from my thesis to deal with the matter at work.  I just could not give both my undivided attention.

I spoke with my supervisor who advised me to suspend my studies for a few months.  I deliberated over this decision for sometime.  And reflected on what Gail had said.  She reminded me that I was human, not superhuman, and that I had studied non-stop for approximately 5 years and was almost at the finishing point, so I could afford to take time out.  I took her advice, set myself a target date to return to my studies and stuck to it.

I share this story because we all go through unexpected events, something crops up that demands our time or drains our energy. So it’s important once these moments pass to gain and maintain momentum.

For me, having worked hard and maintained my momentum at the beginning, helped me to feel better about the break and eager to get back into my routine of study.

So I would advise you, if you need to suspend your studies, set yourself an end date, stick to it and return to your studies. The feeling you get when you complete, is priceless!
