Abstract: So, you’ve decided to do a PhD… now what? In this essay, I provide some advice for beginning PhD students – basically sharing with you what I would tell my younger self. Doing a
PhD is a transformative experience, but the process is challenging – not merely on an intellectual level but also psychologically. To overcome these challenges you will need a certain mindset and a bag of tricks. I offer some help to get you in the right mindset, and I share some of my own
tricks for studying, research, and productivity in general.
