financial benefit of getting one's PhD versus

- Lies we tell ourselves and our friends and family
about grad school.
Recognition that "integration"
of multiple selves is a problem is the critical first step in the solution. It is also
the first step to answering the question of who you are. Only you can discover who you are, no one can
do it for you. You must observe yourselves, all of them, and integrate them into a conscious whole. You
must bridge the great divide between the waking self and the sleeping self. The corpus callosum dividing
the left and right brains must be transformed from a wall into a highway. You can start to understand who
you are only when you integrate all of the many snap shots of your life into a flowing movie. Unless and
until you attain continuity, your true identity will elude you. The meaning of life will remain an enigma
wrapped in a mystery. Your true desires, your real potential, will remain hidden between the intervals of
your many selves. You will be incomplete.
