In particular, at least as a junior PhD student having more than two research projects going at a time (importantly, with one in the implementation phase and one more in the ideation phase) is a good recipe for at least one of those projects dying off. So, it is all the more important to practice and get good at relaxing (weird as that may sound). No matter how much of a tough skin you have, research is not meant to be easy and sometimes things will get tough. Personally, I’ve found working with both post-docs (who can be more hands-on than most advisors) and one or two fellow grad students (who can get their hands dirty alongside you) to be very helpful. And every time I have succeeded, it was because I had great mentors and fellow PhD students working with me on whatever we were doing, and the success was really not my own but the team’s. I haven’t shared these details before so I hope that my record of Acquia’s founding not only pays homage to our incredible colleagues, customers and partners that have made this journey worthwhile, but that it offers honest insight into the challenges and rewards of building a company from the ground up. I intentionally avoided focusing on my successes in grad school in the above video, but thankfully I have had a few of those too. 2009-01-15: On Reading In the last couple years, I have started reading several books, but finished very few. For the last few times that I put significant amounts of work into efforts that were in the end scrapped, I would say the main cause was me going at it too much by myself and not getting enough of a team consensus around one direction. One of my weaknesses as a grad student is a tendency to want to multi task and take on many side projects (as evidenced by the above youtube video and the text you are reading now).
