When entering a magistracy, the student should know that for two years of studying at the master’s program he will be engaged in research activities, the result of which will be the defense of the master’s thesis. Working on the text of the dissertation, the author notes that his strength is rapidly declining. Quickly starting with a few pages a day, he gradually reduces the daily rate, and then does a long break. One of the possible reasons for this decline in performance is an unreasonable daily routine. Disserters like to declare themselves “owls”, which gives them the moral right not to start work on the thesis until late in the evening.

Lie down at 8-9 o’clock in the evening and get up no later than 4 o’clock in the morning. A bucket of cold water on your head, a large cup of coffee, and you will wake up such creative forces, the existence of which you never suspected. But the scientific workers are stubborn people, and after a whole day of stumbling around, our dissertator, wishing the household good night, sits in the kitchen at the table and tries to overcome the stupefying with the help of coffee and cigarettes. Do not be obstinate, follow the good advice, and you will save time, strength and health. If you are a happy graduate student and do not have to walk daily “in presence” by nine in the morning, try another mode option.

Any of the above variants of the biased regime reduces the number of your contacts with people, which also saves time and effort. Some detachment from vanity is an indispensable condition for any creativity.

Before you a blank piece of paper or a computer monitor on which you must fully and clearly state some facts and explain their meaning. For a beginner, this is an almost impossible task. According to the experience of his first publications, he already knows what “stress of a clean sheet” is. The main problem is for him not to find successful expressions (although this is difficult), but in the sequence of presentation. It is incredibly difficult to say everything without missing anything and never having repeated (“truth, only truth and nothing but truth”).
