Great advice for postgraduate students

Mary Hess points to some great advice for doctoral students and much of it is pretty good for masters’ candidates too :) On things like going to conferences, and turning an old assignment into a paper… One thing I’d add to her conference advice, especially for Introverts, is: Talk to people! When you are standing near someone at a reception, or browsing the book display, they are probably as unfocused as you, so talk to them. I’ve met a few of the “names” whose books I’ve admired, doing that, and I’m a certified 19/20 introvert – who does not always take his own advice :(

What’s your one best piece of advice for new scholars?
