An article on tenure-track

Stop Trying To Get Tenure and Start Trying To Enjoy Yourself

One of my junior colleagues forwarded the above article to me, and I read with interest. I think it could also resonate the interest of many people here in iMechanica. I welcome your comments, especially from our been-there done-that tenured colleagues.
