Tangential Procrastination

A sneaky way of getting your research off track through the distraction of quite interesting, but not at all relevant, stuff, which lets you go off on a tangent. While it makes you feel productive to do things, anything you do that is not connected to your research focus is a WASTE OF TIME…

Tangential Procrastination is one of the biggest timewasters in academic life. You are busy, but because you are not focused you are busy with things that really are more distracting than productive. This is a trap that I still fall into, and that I warn every single one of my classes about.
