Motivation is important in building a dissertation. A student should concentrate in doing a dissertation that inspires and motivates them(MacFarlane, 2008). This ensures that the student does not get bored of their dissertation in order to maximize their concentration. It is important for the student to undertake a critical and analytical analysis when choosing the dissertation to undertake.
Collection of data and other necessary information involved in carrying out a dissertation before beginning the actual dissertation is important. Writing a dissertation should be carried out in a quiet environment away from any distraction whatsoever(MacFarlane, 2008). This ensures maximum concentration and better output.
The best way to begin writing a dissertation is by beginning with the chapter that the student really likes. Writing each chapter at a time ensures maximum productivity without tiring. The student should ensure that each chapter in the dissertation is handled to the best of their knowledge without any errors to avoid revisions which tend to be boring and tiresome to carry out.

Every student is motivated to write about anything. It is important to carefully select a dissertation that they are comfortable with. This ensures motivation and simplifies the process of developing the dissertation. Selecting a dissertation that is easy to gather data and all the necessary information needed to complete it ensures that the student finishes the dissertation in time, proofreads it and gives the best. When carrying out a dissertation the writer should converse with themselves or their inner self to ensure that it does not appear as a report(Clarkson, 2010).
Working in a quiet environment away from the distraction of people, cars, television and noisy basements ensures maximum concentration. This ensures that the student does not forget any crucial information and also minimizes errors(MacFarlane, 2008).
Working for a long period tires the student hence making the less creative. Lack of creativity produces a dissertation that is boring with very little content that is unique. It is important that the student concentrates on writing one chapter at a time. This should be carried out when the student is fresh especially in the morning hours.
