Things I wish I’d figured out sooner about a research career

  • To ignore the voice in your head that tells you “You’re not good enough” or that you don’t belong here. It’s in everybody’s head — and it usually lies.
  • That things never get easier or less frantic, but your ability to cope with them will improve.
  • And that it’s essential to know when you’ve reached “Good Enough.” If you don’t learn that, you will never finish anything.
