Many students try to please their Chairperson too much.

It is important to take chances in your writing to make changes you believe are necessary to improve your dissertation/thesis.

When you are writing about a topic, a problem, or a population with which you have firsthand experience, I encourage you to write what you know to be true and later find the literature to support your points. Many students go the other way. They keep waiting to find the right literature, which can deter them from writing. However, when you have experience with the issue that you are studying, then you can write what you know or believe to be true. Later, it will usually be relatively easy to find appropriate studies to support you.
