How to Know If a PhD Is for You

Here is something interesting one of my professors said:

How to Know if a PhD is for you:

1. You have a fire in the belly for the subject.
2. If you don’t get an academic job, will you still be happy that you did the doctorate?
3. Are you personally motivated? It’s like a triathlon.
