Quote From Mattfabb:
Well, in short, you need to find the motivation to start writing!

Let me put it in a way that a finance student would appreciate. My salary as a customer service specialist was £17K. The entry salary for a lecturing position in UK is about £31K. Nearly twice as much. consider also that I hated my previous job, it was boring after 6 months. Now I get to teach and research stuff that I am genuinely interested in.

So, the PhD is essentially a piece of paper that allows you to enter the world of academia. getting it is hard, boring work. But of course if it was easy everybody would have one.

I guess my point is, it's ok if you dont love your PhD. the point is to just get it done, so that you can start doing the stuff you like and get paid a decent salary for it.

however if you have better opportunities elsewhere, maybe you should consider them? can you get a good job in your field without a PhD? but really, you are in your third year, just write the damn thesis and be done with it!



Thank you so much. I don't think that I'll read something more motivating than this.

Hello everyone,
I'm a full-time PhD student working on the field of Finance. I'm in my third year (the 5th month of it). At the beginning, I was totally in it. But now, I feel used, very lazy and I've lost motivation to continue on it.
Actually, I'm in the phase of writing the literature review but I couldn't write a single word.

What should I do?
