I am swimming with new ideas. My advisor says that any one of them would be worth a PhD if I can work the problem through to a useful conclusion.

He recommended that I not work on most of the problems I suggested because they were not fundimental, or even really interesting in the long run. He narrowed me down to three topics that were actually related, and would advance our understanding. This would be very helpful to me when I apply to my first job.
