The article presents information on career development in the field of Science. In order to diversify a scientist must first learn to be proficient in that new area. This takes work and study. Another factor is sharing and collaborative behavior and thinking. One major thing that must be done is structuring one's schedule for time to search and read the literature, to correspond with other scientists, to write papers, to attend conferences, and even to think about experiments. Being more selective in which talks to attend, gives a scientist time to listen more closely rather than watching the clock.
