"Richard Hamming suggests that you ask yourself three questions:

  1. What are the most important problems in your field?
  2. Are you working on one of them?
  3. Why not?

[…] Hamming used to go around actually asking people this, and it didn’t make him popular. But it’s a question anyone ambitious should face."
