I Don’t Get Things Done October 27, 2006Posted by gordonwatts in life, physics life.
I stumbled on this on the web on a site describing how to interview someone for a technical job (software programming in this particular case):
People who are Smart but don’t Get Things Done often have PhDs and work in big companies where nobody listens to them because they are completely impractical. They would rather mull over something academic about a problem rather than ship on time.
Ouch. Living in a large collaboration where getting physics out the door is the one measure of success I’d like to believe that I can get things done. And have a Ph.D.
I found this while procrastinating working on my DPF talks… Hmmm…
