Remind yourself constantly that the reason you get up in the morning is to write scientific papers.
You are asked a particularly awkward question after your conference presentation. Do you: a) Blurt out 'I was afraid someone would ask that question.'
If you can answer all of these challenges then you are probably on your way to becoming a huge smash in your field.
A third dimension, that's what I need. I must sculpt. I am thinking plastic centrifuge tubes. I am thinking gold spray paint.
You want things to run smoothly and students to get the message, not to stick to your schedule at all costs.
So I asked myself, "What is an undergraduate practical meant to achieve, and how do you prepare a successful one?"
"If you can give a good account of why you did what you did, you are already a long way to winning your examiners over."
"Scientists might be portrayed as geeks, but a successful one certainly has to be a people person."
"Stress the need for accurate recording of the outcomes, as well as the importance of labelling which sample is which."
"You want your student to be able to turn the handle and watch at least some decent results slowly emerge."
