Don’t Wait to Be Asked

Providing a resource can be “good and good for you”. In addition to the good it does for others, it can boost your visibility and advance your career. Most people are pretty good about taking advantage of service opportunities when they are asked to serve. But you don’t have to wait, you can make your own opportunities. You can:

  • Think about a resource that you’d like to have yourself that isn’t available.
  • Notice resource that other (research) communities have that yours doesn’t.
  • Look for applications of new technology, or of your specific technical expertise.

For example, you could start a blog! 🙂
