Life experience: Working in the field of interest always makes happy, even if work is very hard. Therefore, never hear to people saying “… very interesting, but in this specialty you will never make a carrier …”. In my opinion, a structured planning of the carrier for 3 to 5 years in advance, both clinically and scientifically, is indispensable for success. The pleasure with your work is the requirement for success.
