Ask Vladimir

‘Ask Vladimir’ is a new feature on this Blog. I take most interesting (sometimes most common) questions and address them here so that other users can benefit from the information (tips, advice and so on).

Here is a classic question I get over and over (asked by Bellyn K. Whitteker).

“I am in the end stage of my thesis. I am constantly having to rewrite it to my advisor’s wishes. This has been going on for over a year. What would you suggest at this point? Would you hire an editor? I feel like I need fresh eyes to tell me exactly what is wrong. Thanks!” Continue reading »

5 Tips On How To Overcome Writer’s Block?

Tuesday, October 7, 2008 18:04 3 Comments

All writers have blocks and so do you. Here are 5 tips on how you can overcome those blocks.



1. If you are writing your thesis now, this means that you are at your last stage of getting a degree. Looking at your previous works you completed successfully can pump you up with some positive attitude. If you feel stuck read one of your impressive works to remind yourself of your potential.

2. One of my professors said to me once “You know, Vladimir, I hate to write, but I love to edit”. Take a lesson from this statement. Continue reading »

How And When To Write a Master Thesis Abstract?

Tuesday, February 26, 2008 1:33 1 Comment

When and how do you need to write your Master thesis abstract?




You need to stop worrying about your Master thesis abstract if you are not done yet with your thesis at least 80%. You abstract is just a quick snapshot of your thesis and I would not worry about it now unless you’re more than half way through.

Abstract can be written in 5 minutes but it is the most precise-to-the point part of your thesis. In some 10-15 lines you need to convey the whole ‘truth’ of your thesis. If you don’t, it is considered a poor abstract. Continue reading »

How to Get Started with Your Master Thesis – A Psychological Checklist II

Friday, February 15, 2008 16:14 No Comments

Much of the difficulty arising from the thesis-writing exercise is psychological rather than technical. To finish your master thesis, you shouldn’t only have the right topic, adviser, method, equipment, reading materials, etc. It is much more important to have the right attitude. Think about it; solutions to technical problems can be found in many books, but if you don’t have the will, the inclination or the patience to look for them, they won’t do you much good. Here are some tips that can help you put yourself in the right frame of mind for thesis writing. Continue reading »

How I Wrote My Master Thesis And Got It Published?

Wednesday, February 13, 2008 14:52 No Comments

YEAH! So many months of hard work paid off well. I GOT MY MASTER THESIS PUBLISHED at the library of Copenhagen Business School (CBS). See it here.

Today, I have got a secret to share and that’s about how to get your Master Thesis done and better yet published.

Let me ask you a question before I begin? Are you familiar with a “Law of Attraction” concept? If you don’t know what the Law is all about. Go ahead and google it (shortcut is here). You will quickly find out that it was the key to how I got my thesis published, that is, how I succeeded and why you should do the same if you want to achieve great results.

To be honest, back then when I was busting my butt off trying to write my thesis and make it sound intriguing and a one-go read, I had no clue what the Law of Attraction was all about. All I knew that I wanted to see my Thesis on the shelves of the CBS’ library.

Every day and anytime I would write something up, be it idea, problem formulation, thesis structure, analysis (paralysis), conclusion and etc. I would clearly picture a CBS student shop through the library and pick my thesis off the library shelf, read it and actually say “… that’s an interesting piece of work”.

Already then, six months before my thesis got published, I clearly visualized what I wanted to accomplish with my thesis. And that’s the Law of Attraction when one pictures what he/she wants and think about it, thus generating positives waves of thought that will eventually lead to, if executed properly, a massive set of action.

I don’t care if you are just starting of have been half way through, or even if you are almost finished with your thesis, it will never be late to speak to your subconsious mind to succeed in anything you do. If every day for 15 minutes you can train the most important muscle of yours, the brain, and pump it up with positive energy, thoughts and clear images of what you want to accomplish, I guarantee you that you will get what you want. Persistence pays off, read the literature and do you research if you feel sceptical.

To your success

Master thesis technical checklist

Technical checklist

Your master thesis can give you a great sense of accomplishment. There’s pride in contributing something new to the greater body of academic knowledge.

Completing your thesis also means that you can finally gain your Master’s degree and move up in the world. Unfortunately, much of the sense of accomplishment you’ll get when you finish your thesis will come from overcoming great odds. For you see, completing a thesis easily falls under the category of “things easier said than done.” Continue reading »
