The most important thing for a scientist is to work on important problems, and the best way to do this is to have a clear vision of what you want to achieve. To be successful, you must also be willing to fight the system and take advantage of all the resources available to you. Finally, you must be able to sell your work to others in order to make it impactful.

The "Big Rocks" of Life

by Dr. Stephen R. Covey (2 min)Dr. Stephen R. Covey's "Big Rocks" illustration teaches us that if we don't prioritize the important things in life, we won't get them done. He encourages us to identify the "Big Rocks" in our lives, such as projects, time with loved ones, faith, education, finances, and causes. We must put these "Big Rocks" first or we won't get them in at all. This is a reminder to prioritize the things that matter most and to not let our schedules get too full. We must make time for the important things in life.πŸ”— Glasp Community Highlights
