Science got you down? Visit Science Rocks!
“Enthusiasm finds the opportunities, and energy makes the most of them.” — Henry Hoskins
For those that have seen me in person you know that I am BIG on PASSION!! Tonight I was watching NOVA and they had a program on the history of the first flowering plant. There was a scene where the scientists suddenly tells his driver to pull over to the side of the road. The scientists gets out of the car and proceeds to show us several rare flowers that are just growing naturally on the side of the road. At one point, he was so excited and overwhelmed that both my husband and I thought he had hurt himself, but it turned out he was just overwhelmed at seeing a rare orchid. I turned to my husband and said, “I just love to watch a person, like him, who is so excited by their work–it is inspirational.”
Again, I think passion is SO IMPORTANT- for everyone!
Not only do I think that “science rocks” I also think that most scientists are extremely passionate about their work–that’s why I love working with science and technology professionals.
I know that at times, in the lab it feels like you know less this week than last week. It’s these times you have to give yourself a little boost. I found this link a while back but have been saving it. But today I think is the day I am going to share this little gem.
So if your science has got you down…take this very quick break. I promise this will put a smile on your face and perhaps remind you that you are following a dream.
