When I was doing my PhD I got frustrated with lack of progress so many times. Several times I quit only to be persuaded by my mum or dad, my supervisor Professor Michael Hitchman and my friends to carry on and finish what I had started. I believed that I had too many challenges, too many difficulties and not enough talent. Now I am so glad that I listened to them more than my own self doubts and worry.
As a supervisor I have come across a number of students over the years who felt the same way. They were filled with self doubt and worry. I think most students at some point during their PhD studies have at times felt the same way.
