My new research philosophy

Previously on this blog, I presented my new teaching philosophy--derived from the wisdom of Dwight Schrute on the show The Office.

Now it's time for research. I watched a rerun last night that had the perfect quotation for how I want to chose and conduct research projects.

"Whenever I am about to do something I think - would an idiot do that - and if they would, I would not do that thing"

That's it; in fact, many of my mistakes in research are things that an idiot would do, and so if I avoid those, my research will be much stronger.
