A few good reminders for PhD students (and others)

Trust your own interest.
Read promiscuously with an open mind.
Have faith in the value of what you are doing.
Don't be afraid to get close to the thing you're trying to understand.

From Les Back's Dancing and Wrestling with Scholarship: Things to do and things to avoid in a PhD Career.
