You and Your Research
Richard Hamming's talk 'You and Your Research' is something I've been re-reading every year or so for the past few years. He talks about a variety of topics including: choosing to do first-class research, how to manage your bosses, and how to keep being successful once you have done something important. The overarching topics are discipline and hard work.
I look forward to reading it again next year. I always pull something new out of it.
