WHAT’S THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED?
TELL US ABOUT A TIME WHEN THIS PIECE OF ADVICE CAME IN USEFUL.
I received this advice when I had a disproportionate amount of bad luck during my PhD research. I faced a lot of technical problems with the instruments that I was using. My supervisor told me that if I didn’t take things personally or blame myself for the situation, I would be able to think clearly and find the solution to the problem that I have.
