Quote from: hermes2015 on November 19, 2018, 03:54:38 AMI am terribly lazy and always hate it when I have to do certain things, like write reports. I cope by starting as long as possible before the deadline and then do the job in micro steps. That way I literally only work at it a few minutes every session, which could once a day with a far-off deadline. It's amazing how effortlessly an unpleasant task gets done this way. When I started my PhD project, I started writing up in the first week of the 3 years it took me. As time passed, I added a bit every few days, which also made it possible to revise continually. Most of the other PhD researchers were in a mad panic when they were writing up at the end of their projects, but for me it was a breeze.
