Finding ways to improve scientific writing and academic productivity.


I almost couldn’t find the will or mind to bring this post to fruition. However, my tired mind became inspired by the movie “Hidden Figures.”

The only thing standing in our way to greatness is ourselves. Blaming everyone or everything else is an excuse.

We may think we cannot be better, or learn new things because we’re too old and tired, or too young and immature, but we’re wrong. There’s no age or condition for bringing the seed of curiosity, resilience and creativity to fruition.

It takes time, patience, vulnerability, and one day when we least expect, we’ll recognize how much we evolved.
