Simon LeBon of Duran Duran once described how everyone in the band really, really wanted to be pop stars. And then they realized this would require that they learn how to play musical instruments.
Similarly, lots of people really, really want to be doctors / surgeons / dentist / optometrists / health care professionals. And eventually they will realize this will require that they learn how to fight with insurance companies.
People who want to be scientists eventually realize this will require that they learn how to administer grants, create graphics, do accounting, be a coach, be a teacher, be a communicator, be a diplomat, and much more.
Careers rarely require just doing one thing. This is emphatically so for science.
