I watched this talk and it answered most of the questions I had about how to succeed and make an impact.
The talk is titled “You and your research/career”, implying your career is something to be studied.
You should watch it yourself, but for me, the main take away is: “Work on important things with important people”.
I hope you learn something that inspires you to take charge of your career. Where do you want to be, who do you want to work with and what kind of legacy do you want to leave behind.
