But the far better method is to home in on a range of targets. You may have started your scientific training thinking that you’d end up working in a particular research area. By all means, continue pursuing that original goal if it still motivates youâ€”but at the same time, exploring a few sideline ideas about other industries and other kinds of jobs can’t help but put more options on your table. If you combine this creative thinking with a bit of structured time and effort, you just may walk away with a very interesting next step in your career.
In other words, you should be investing at least some emotional energy into a career.

Remember to eat well and get enough restâ€”simple things that even the smartest moms neglect.
