You know, there's one piece of advice you can apply to just about anything you do. Bend your knees, keep your head down, and shorten your stroke.

The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, in a moment of
reasoned lucidity which is almost unique among its current tally of
five million, nine hundred and seventy-three thousand, five hundred
and nine pages, says of the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation products
that "It is very easy to be blinded to the essential uselessness
of them by the sense of achievement you get from getting them to work
at all. In other words -- and this is the rock-solid principle on
which the whole of the Corporation's galaxywide success is founded --
their fundamental design flaws are completely hidden by their
superficial design flaws."
- Douglas Adams,
So Long, and Thanks for all
Physics needs both theoreticians and experimentalists. The theoreticians are necessary to rescue the experimentalists from the trap of doing the same experiments over and over again. The experimentalists are necessary to keep the theoreticians from drifting off into complete irrelevance.
- I regret that I can't remember
exactly who said this!
