(feel free to share this video or embed on your own site)There is no shortage of PhD advice out there; how to be more organised, how to procrastinate less, how to sort your data and so on... And yet there is no shortage of stressed PhD students either.Is the advice flawed? Or are the students just not working hard enough? Neither; the problem is that the advice generally given consists of tactics, while most students are still trying to figure out the rules of the game.If you don't know how the system works or what you have to achieve, then being more organised or working harder simply won't work... you'll just end up going insane!In this talk, you will learn the fundamental principles every PhD student needs to know in order to succeed.
