Advisement what not to do
What a lesson for life. I have this PhD student who is finishing up and at the last moment I spotted a few data formatting issue with her paper. Yesterday I tried to reason with her, she didn’t listen. Today, when I met her, asked her if she reconsidered some of the suggestions. She didn’t and hadn’t. The rudeness was amazing. I could not imagine in my student days to defy my professor if he suggested changes in my thesis if it needed one.
Times change. Cultures change too. I should not feel sad. Some people are rude, people are disrespectful. Should I be sad? Move on. This is life. There is nothing to be attached to. Without disrespect one never understands the value of feeling special.
Thank you Buddha! One lesson everyday.
