A compass

Finding a research topic for my PhD was a real struggle. There were so many possible topics, and I had a tough time focusing on just one of these. Sometimes I would work on a problem for a few months, then get disinterested and switch to another topic. My advisor was worrying that this was becoming a habit, and whether I would finish my PhD at all.

I needed some kind of compass to guide me through all of the possibilities before graduate school starts to threaten me with expulsion!!
