I agree with most of what you said, but it is a *bit* naive to say that
as long as your work is fulfilling you, don't worry -- this is a luxury
that belongs to the tenured.  Short of that, you always have to
prove/justify your productivity to your boss/chairman/granting agency,
unless you are independently wealthy.  If your work moves at *too* slow
a pace, you'll stop getting funded, and your perspective will change
radically...
