    Very inspirational! It made me realize that, aside from the internet, I'm not really opening up myself, at least for peer review. Hmm. Thanks for sharing.

    Yeah, I think the whole peer review part is the hardest to go through with. IT's difficult to accept criticism and being open to change. But if you are stuck in a rut it is probably the best way to move forward.

    I just was perusing this article this morning and I really liked the article. I find over and over it's who you know and even more importantly who you ask. I Am not very good at asking for help, but I see that is what the successful people around me do. So thought it was interesting.

    I was also thinking about it in terms of my dh. Getting in the movie he business he is starting from the ground up and moving up with the contact he makes. I am starting to see some potential success there. Sometimes you just have to start small and be patient. I think him being open to different opportunities he hadn't considered before helps too - pays to be flexibile, to realize your goals will change with time, that life may surprise you with opportunity where you weren't looking, etc.

    His contacts respect him as well because he is not scared to be truthful, when all of his contacts are writing movie scripts he is very honest where they can improve, etc. Most people won't speak up. People respect him more and constantly ask for his input. It helps on the other side to be honest I guess when people ask for a crtique.

    So much of life is random and luck. Statistics-wise, the more you put yourself out there, the more you increase your chances- though you may still not have success. Myself, I am very fortunate to have risked my career and (luckily) landed a job doing what I love, and it never would have happened if I hadn't dared to stick my neck out a bit from the lab life I'd been living.
