I am pretty sure most of you have been involved in academia. (I mean, studied sciences at university level) Sometimes, I get really angry when I don't come up with a brilliant solution, especially if one of my classmates just goes like 'ah!'. Also, I feel really disappointed at my self whenever I hear anecdotes about Terence Tao or Stephen Wolfram. I am really looking forward to hear about some experienced advices. Thank you in advance.
