Things I swore I would never do when I had my own lab but am now doing

  1. Have a picture on my professional website that is more than 4 years old.

  2. Drift in and out of email checking while I get real work done.

  3. Be late to almost every meeting because I schedule back-to-back meetings and can never end them early.

  4. Forget details about experiments we are running in my lab.

  5. Tell that same story yet again because I have no idea if I told it before, or if so, to whom.
