How has your writing gone this week, Brave Supplicant?
Are you feeling proud of your accomplishments and progress?
If not, never fear — you still have time!
Or, if you have been productive: Good on you!!!!
You’re probably not that thrilled that another week has slipped past, but one truth is that this phase you’re in, with the stressors of the deadlines breathing down your neck and the seemingly never-ending list of essays you have to write, this phase will be over soon enough. The work you’re doing now is important! Keep plugging away, and the days will come and go, and in the not-so-distant future, you will be able to go back to your previous routines without essay writing hanging over your head. (Whatever “previous routines” might look like in this strange delta world we are in.)

(There’s a lot of posts on “premise” which is sort of similar to the concept of “theme” in your essay — but none on this important tip!)
Let’s dig into this: The promise of the premise!

We are around, as always, Brave Supplicant! (MBA consulting services available here!) Hit us up if we can be helpful!
