Reasons and More to Study for a PhD

Date : August 18, 2015

Wanting to prefix “Dr” in front of your name may not be a substantial enough reason to enrol into a PhD programme. Maybe even the temptation for a better job may not be good enough in itself. A PhD is grilling, it calls for a lot of hard work , long grilling hours of work and the reward is a long wait away and perhaps too difficult to keep yourself motivated for such a long time. I have to say that other than intellect and skill, phasing through a PhD programme takes immense determination, stamina and a whole lot of discipline. To add to it, there is no guarantee that you would get a job by the end of the course. With all this details of a PhD programme that I have listed above, you need to be very clear about why you want to get into a PhD programme, if at all that is on your mind.

Find here some reasons, good enough to motivate you to get into a PhD programme:

  1. The dare: A PhD programme will be a dare or a challenge in more than one way. It would be so and call for a disciplined, organised and endless energy for a long time to come.
  2. You look forward to learning: In your niche area of study you are an expert and you have the yearning to constantly learn and gain in depth knowledge like no other.
  3. You have a passion for research: The research findings should give you a passion and excitement that nothing else would give you.
  4. You have the courage to face rejection: It is nearly inevitable to face rejection and disappointment in your PhD journey. Things may not work in your favour all the time. Be ready to face it and sail through it with a smile and deal it in a way that it doesn’t impact other aspects of your personality.

Reading all this, if you still have it in you to do your PhD then do go ahead and learn to love the package as a whole.
