Science ain’t a bisiness! (Science isn’t a business!) – MetaMorgan TV

Universities seem to have come to the notion that scientists are all just little producers of revenue, and that the whole endeavor is just one big business. In fact, I advocate that if you run your lab and career like a business, you'll be more successful. However, that doesn't mean that I agree that all of academia should turn into a big business, and today I have an ridiculous real-world example to illustrate that with.

Why science mentoring is important and at the same time problematic – MetaMorgan TV



Having good mentoring is vital to move forward in a science career. Today's careers are fraught with complexities that didn't previously exist, and navigating through those can be daunting without good advice. However, if you seek out mentors who are too close to the "outcome of the experiment" (that would be you and your career), you are risking problems.

How to be truly productive in your career? Consider the P to PC ratio (Episode VI of Success Series) – MetaMorgan TV



In Part VI of the program on science careers, efficacy, and bringing in big bux to get recognized for the science that you do, Morgan talks about how to optimize your productivity. In order to truly optimize it - over the long haul - you have to consider your P to PC ratio. You probably haven't considered this before, but it is a vital concept, especially when you find yourself feeling like you need to work harder and longer hours - or in getting your personnel to work harder and longer hours.
