There are a million ways to look at one’s life but I have always found it useful to have an organizing theory for my decisions. During my PhD studies, I had a suite-mate whose mantra was: “It seemed like a good idea at the time.” Although I admired his spontaneity, that’s not the way I roll. For me, repotting is a central theme. In a long and fascinating (to me) career, I recognize when opportunities can be seized if I am willing to transfer my roots to a larger pot.
