Abstract
While most postgraduate students start their course of study being highly motivated, staying motivated throughout the duration of their study is often a challenge. Maintaining motivation throughout the journey is very challenging especially if they are not supported with the right mind-set. This talk will discuss on how to construct a better plan so the journey will be meaningful and interesting by looking at the bigger purpose of research and knowledge exploration. It will deal with both technicality of the scientific world and making sense of the basic postgraduate need such as dealing with supervision, writing, being realistic and hanging in there when the going gets tough.
