Bring Intentionality Into Your Summer

Summer is almost here for you lucky semester folks. Those of us on the quarter system have five weeks to go. Come August though, I will be living large!

Too often, doctoral students and faculty are not planfull with their summers. That is, they either fill it with binge writing, hoping desperately to "catch up" or just crash from having their psychic batteries emptied.

Whatever you do, great. However, I would suggest that a good summer is not one in which you blindly follow one extreme. A good summer is one where you consciously and intentionally decide how you will spend it.

I would also suggest balance, but that is my suggestion for how we perform our entire work lives. A different post, perhaps.

Bring intentionality into your summer; make it a great one.
