I sometimes thrive with diversity. Other times I want the mono-focus. Right now I'm having to be diverse as I shepherd a grad student to completion of the major research project (just the edits, yay!) while also getting an article out and maybe get the research for my October conference paper out of the way and let's not forget all the household maintenance chores of summertime. . . .

I like the metaphor of too many tabs open. I can't quit and restart but maybe I can winnow some down. Wishing peaceful progress to you!

Darn you, WN?! Every time I read your blog I end up adding books to my reading list!

I love reading about your grappling with management of time and work and mental space. I will remember "quit and restart" for next time.
