Keeping being yourself...


"Real generosity to the future lies in giving all to the present"- Albert Camus


Being generous... but also sucessful

I surely agree that one needs to find limits with keeping being generous but also successful. Finding the right balance with caring about others and caring about our own is difficult and I can feel at this time that the path for me to find it and be both a renowned scientist and an good leader is still long. Having in mind that a good leader needs to first secure herself/himself before securing others, needs to drive herself/himself before driving others, needs to find her/his own path before showing the path to others. And  keeping care of others. Finding the right balance in the work, values and beliefs was hard but today I think I did it with keeping staying myself too:  A deep altruist. I have pursued helping others without being always granted a way that is considered productive in an environment where one must chose between publish or perish.  As many of us who chose to do similar, I believe that generosity is essential for keeping science moving forward but yet being generous is often not valorized and kept being not attractive if one seeks for the fastest way for success in academia . The last few years, with happiness, I have seen the scientific community moving slightly away from this trend and considering serving the community, sharing with peers and being generous to others with new eyes. I deeply think that being generous in academia should not lead to be unsuccessful. At the opposite, the entire community relies and benefits from generosity of others on the long term for productivity and sustainability. We need to be more thankful to those who take times to share and help others with their expertise and knowledge and express it openly. 
My today's goal is to be generous while successful. It takes time to learn how but we all benefit from the generosity of others a way or another.  Being sucessful as part of a community might be equally important as being sucessful as an individual. Thankfully and for some time already, the community is moving  slowly but surely forward that...
