What does finishing a PhD over 7 years REALLY teach you?

After seven years, two babies, getting married, moving house twice and a whole host of travel and adventures along the way, I finally, FINALLY submitted my PhD. 

I’ve learned a few things along the way.

Some about forensic criminology, lawyers, DNA evidence. Some about how much I love to teach/lecture/work with students. Some about academic life.

But mostly about myself and the sort of life that I love and what is important to me.

This videos shares some of those lessons learned.

When is the EASY way, the BEST way?

So knowing that you don't need to be great to start, but that you need to start to be great - how do we find what works best for us to move us forward? To overcome procrastination or something that we are passionate about, but a little frightened of?

This week's video is about my own experience with the path of least resistance and how that can often lead us on a magical adventure - one that we thought must have been 'harder' or more 'time consuming' or more 'treacherous' to start. Well - it doesn't have to be. Start where you are at. Start with what FEELS good and you are on the way to greatness. Take Elizabeth Gilbert's advice to Brene Brown and put it into your own life. Make it EASIER for yourself.
