If at first you don’t succeed…

The first time you try anything in research it will probably not go perfectly.  I call the first run the test run.  I plan that the first time I try something I will have to do it again.  One to make sure it is reproducable, but also I may be trying to learn how to do the reaction or technique.  This gives me a mental freedom if we will see how it goes learn from the first run and adjust.   I like to run my science this way.  It eliminates frustration of not getting it right the first because I have already plan a learning curve in.   I also have more realistically plan a timeline it takes to do something.
