Through the bushes

Do you ever have one of those weeks where you can see perfectly what you want to get done, but everyone just seems to keep throwing up new challenges with higher priorities?  This has been one of those weeks, where progress has been hampered by all the little things – most commonly taking up the slack when others let you down, but also less important little tasks, like getting some blog posts written.

What makes it most frustrating is that where I want to be is always in sight, just beyond the tasks before me. I’ve been told this is what being a Professor is like, and why the higher-ups in academia tend to delegate the big ideas to other and then spend time managing their research groups.
