"The future is called "perhaps," which is the only possible thing to call the future. And the important thing is not to allow that to scare you."
- Tennessee Williams
Great post on some of the traps we fall into as grad students. I recognize myself in many of them!
"We fear our highest possibility (as well as our lowest one). We are generally afraid to become that which we can glimpse in our most perfect moments."
- Abraham Maslow
"Turning pro is a mindset. If we are struggling with fear, self-sabotage, procrastination, self-doubt, etc., the problem is, we’re thinking like amateurs. Amateurs don’t show up. Amateurs crap out. Amateurs let adversity defeat them. The pro thinks differently. He shows up, he does his work, he keeps on truckin’, no matter what."
- Steven Pressfield
