The need for peer review

Recently I was writing a research paper, and I was having an extremely difficult time finishing it. This is a problem I usually don’t have, but I eventually realized that I needed a fresh set of eyes to read over my paper and help me filter through some of my thoughts. Unsurprisingly, shortly after I  had someone help me a little bit with my paper I finished it. I say this to illustrate that when it comes to our work, personal and professional, it is good to have peers review and critique your work. In the end, it can refresh your perspective and renew your energy to continue working.
