Diagnosis: Struck with a case of “computer domestication.”
Prescription: Stop working digitally and GO PHYSICAL.
So, I’m feeling a little lost in my computer right now, in terms of having an overall sense of the proposal. The Thesis Whisperer refers to this as allowing your computer to domesticate you.
The effects are that I feel BLINDED regarding the status of the proposal. That’s bad. Very, very bad: If it’s anything I need at this juncture, it’s VISION about what I’m doing and where things are going, and HOW things will be happening.
Time to take stock and go physical: Below is my handwritten, Livescribe graph to help me take stock of the state of the proposal. Now I will hole-punch physical printouts of these sections and store them in order in my physical THESIS BINDER (a three-ring 1-inch binder).
