Phil: I’m busy. Very busy. But still, I don’t seem to get as much done as I think I should.
Fortunately, there is a word for that.
Ploiter – To work in an entirely ineffectual way, because your mind is simply not on the job.
That’s me. Too tired after a busy weekend. Brain fugg because there are so many things to do and I keep jumping from one to another.
All of which leads to,
Quiddling – Busying oneself with trivial tasks in order to avoid the important ones.
I blame the dopamine. That little hit you get when finding out something new, or achieving something really trivial. Yes, I know I’ll feel much better if I do something big, but my stupid brain doesn’t get it.
Still, back to work…
