What's the best advice that you ever received?

"If you want your Ph.D. you can get it." I've had to place this advice in context since there are some goals people want to achieve that aren't necessarily valuable; i.e., some degrees or skills are more valuable in the workplace than others, so just having proficiency or tenacity isn't a guarantee of a good return on those degrees or skills. But the point about desire and grit applies within that context.

What's the best advice that you could give your students?

Seek out your professor's help if/when you need it. In my class, students typically say that the video conference office hours are very helpful.
