I am grateful that the authors started this discussion. Scientific careers are very challenging, and there is a lack of training in many graduate programs to provide this kind of career meta-advice. Such discussions are a good starting point, and young scientists should take them seriously.

    In the vein of promoting further debate and discussion, I provide here a different and perhaps deeper look at what makes a successful scientist.
