Perfectionism leads to overwhelm, and overwhelm leads to procrastination.
Therefore, we aim for progress over perfection because it creates consistency. Proven to increase productivity.
Avoid a cycle of overwork, burnout and recovery by adopting a structured working pattern. Regular breaks and time off is an integral part of PhD strategy and a focus on daily wellbeing goals, beside our academic tasks, promotes wellbeing.
We believe we are stronger (and happier) when we work together as a team. All our members have something to offer, and as a collective, we establish a robust knowledge base and thriving community.
Criticism should be constructive and suggestions for improving should be clearly laid out. Criticism without support is just criticism.
We encourage the celebration of wins (daily, small and big wins). This helps us recognise our strengths and accomplishments, and boosts our self-belief.
We believe the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, and here lies our greatest strength. We are happy to support or collaborate with those who identify with our values.
