Many of us have butterfly minds. Although well aware of the importance of focus, we are still inclined to fly from subject to subject.
It can be helpful to set aside some "garden time" so your butterfly mind can visit a variety of topics. That time is not a simple diversion. It can provide insights that would not be discovered if you remained focused on a single subject.
[Yesterday, I gleaned some very helpful information while reading about the Roman campaign against Hannibal and then scanning a Bundestag speech on the Holocaust. Both directly contributed to my focus when I shifted to some major projects. It was garden time well spent.]
