Research tips: work hard

Terry Tao; link via AMS graduate student blog which summarises the post nicely:

The two main problems are maintaining motivation and figuring out what to do next.  I have summarized some advice that Fields Medalist Terry Tao has written on the importance of working hard:1. Intelligence isn’t enough.

2. Reading and writing are important in addition to thinking.

3. Details are important in making your work worth reading and in selecting which papers are worth your time.

Take a look!
