Researcher Identity Development
Having a life!
Work or study happen in the context of the rest of our lives. There are many other aspects which enhance, compete with, and detract from both whatever we consider to be our main focus and from having a broader and more fulfilling experience of life. Regardless of whether you have clear goals and aspirations, are considering an opportunity, or facing challenges, this section should help you to think about the kind of life you would like and how you can work toward making it a reality.
Well, no one goes to their deathbed and says “Oh I should have worked harder.” People get to their deathbed and say “I wish I’d spent more time with the family” or travelled more, or did this or did that. [Trudi]
