A little praise goes a long way

I gave a draft to one of my mentors, and it came back covered in red. Comments, suggested edits, deletions, additions, objections, pointing out "wordiness," "bogging down" and opportunities to make it "more fun to read." However the comments start with the statement, "this is a very valuable paper, and I expect it will be widely cited."

A teaspoon of sugar does in fact make the medicine go down in the most delightful way.
