My default mode of research consists of many projects at once, spanning multiple disciplines.
As an experiment, I’ve decided to take:
- 2 weeks to clear most of my mental cache
- tying up loose ends on current projects
- posting a few project ideas
- 2-3 weeks to focus on one subject
I hypothesize that I will gain an understanding of my optimal work style.
Edit from the future (2022): I ended up picking up pure math as this aforementioned 2-3 week project, and fell so deeply in love I decided to devote myself to mathematics professionally.
