The path is difficult to predict, however one step will direct you to the next one…
Working on research is analogous to choosing a life path
What do these steps remind you?

You know the goal, however the justification for the research might not be so clear
Sometimes difficult to find and sometimes conflicting
Could influence data analysis, could drive a biased analysis
Your idea might or might not work
Need to choose and unbiased method
The method of analysis will influence your interpretation
What do you think is the most important step in order to do improve efficiency?
What have people done? Is my idea actually novel?
Are your results reproducible, novel and a real proof?
