• Set realistic goals. You do something significant when you wind up your project feeling it has changed just what you think and that your readers think you did it well, even if they don’t agree with your claims.
  • Most important, recognize the struggle for what it is – a learning experience. To overcome the problems that all beginners face, do what successful researchers do, especially when discouraged: review your plan and what you’ve written, then press on, confident that it will turn out OK. Perhaps only “OK – considering,” but probably a lot better than that.
