Two thoughts for you if you go for a PhD

Got a question asking my take on getting a PhD. Well, that's not my field, but here's my take -

I don't have much of a background in academia, but I have some friends who do and some general thoughts. Actually, I got two thoughts for you if you go on to go for a PhD.

1. Study exactly what requirements are needed, and study the background of people who have gotten a PhD successfully and have written about it.

A lot of people try to reinvent the wheel or otherwise don't have a plan, thus leading to the tragedy and horror you talk about. This is just generally good advice anyways - understand the rules/parameters going in, and understand and model someone who has done it successfully.

2. Go for it as fast as possible. Prioritize quantity over quality in the beginning.

Better Procrastinating

On Tynan

I have a big project I'm working on (secret for now, haven't decided if I should write about it yet or not), and I've been seriously procrastinating.

It's not that I don't want to do it. It's something I arrived at myself, is very inline with my Life Nomadic goals, and will be very exciting to complete. It's my perfect project.

I'd been working on it for a week, though, and had been getting very little work done. To use a rough estimate, I had done maybe 5% of the work in a week. Twenty weeks until completion is way too long.
