'Stop agonizing over perfection'
Something nice which I came across the other day, and which I've been wanting to share on here: this is a suggestion on how to think about your writing.
"Stop agonizing over perfection. [...] Instead, focus [on] offering value to others. This change of attitude made a huge difference for me and my book. I put a post-it by my laptop as a reminder every day, “How can I be most helpful to my reader?"
I think this might just be the perfect note-to-self for the odd (agonizing, perfectionist) PhD student.

Have a great day, everybody!...
