Envisioning a magical scenario in which you’re doing everything you want to is exhilarating, in the beginning. However, adding a dose of realism can give you the best chance of accomplishing what matters most to you.

Here comes another “learning from 2020, leaning into 2021” article. You may be tired of seeing these by now, so why would I submit yet another one?

When I was in graduate school for my doctoral degree, I submitted a paper to a well-respected professor. Afterward, he asked to meet and inquired whether English was my second language. It wasn’t. At the time, I was working full time, had a young family and commuted 1.5 hours each way to the school several nights a week, getting home at midnight. I was often very tired.
