I’m sure everyone reading this has experienced the feeling where you have a lot to do but no motivation to do it. It’s frustrating. It needs to be dealt with somehow though.
I deal with it in different ways (depending on my mood, how time sensitive the to-do task is, etc.), and no one way works in all situations.
Lately, when I’m feeling unmotivated about science or research, I’ve been trying something new… I go answer questions on Quora.
