Few Things before Starting a PhD

Published under Concept Paper .

Not every one of the human beings is born with equal amount of capabilities. Every one cannot cope up with the irregularities and pressure being faced by them in their daily lives. If the existing research scholars across the world and across various domains are being looked at, then it can be seen that a big chunk of those people at some point of their lives turned out to be frustrated with their occupational life hazards, and in order to find a peaceful life, they chose to be a researcher. It can also be heard that, one who cannot prosper in their occupational lives, ventures in the world of research and academics. In several countries of the world, PhD students are looked down upon, as they are believed to be inferior to others, who are pursuing their carrier in the industrial world.

The world of research, notwithstanding the common belief of the industrial world, is a place, where one can nurture and develop the ideas in order to reshape the world. However, one should remember a few things before venturing into this world. First, this is a place, where no one is there to motivate. This is a place for those, who are self-motivated and are passionate about their works. Second, one should know to work as a team. Unless the ideas are shared and validated by others, knowledge creation can never take place. One should be able to disseminate the knowledge properly to the fellow colleagues. Third, more than hard work, sincerity and honesty is required towards the work, as falsification of information is never desirable by the world and society. Fourth, one should be able to welcome criticism, as this is the only way to improve the quality of a particular research work.
