4: Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn

You develop a pretty thick skin working in academia. Often the editor’s rejection message of “your manuscript doesn’t fit the scope of the journal” feel’s like they’re saying, “you know that thing you poured the last six months of your life into — it really isn’t that good”.As a scientist, it’s crucial to remember that sometimes you win and sometimes you learn.It’s nice to hear that even successful academics have a long list of failures, which helps put our “failures” into perspective. However, access to this kind of information is pretty rare. Instead, it’s much easier to remind yourself of times when you were winning.Not sure how to do this? Well, you’re in luck because in the latest episode of the Startup Scientist mini-cast Dan shares two easy ways to help bring to mind your past successes.Links:Dan's other podcast, Everything Hertzhttps://soundcloud.com/everything-hertzTwitter:https://twitter.com/TSS_podcastFacebook:https://www.facebook.com/startup.scientist See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
