Thankfully my adviser/the prof cut in and gave me a time estimate at one point so I knew I -had- to skip around. I spent all day yesterday prepping that thing though, and the night before. And the night before.
Thing is, being a perfectionist and an over-compensator doesn't make my work any better, it just makes me less efficient.
There's gotta be a workshop I can take or book I can read to stop doing that. I never realize I am doing it until it's too late.
Ok, back to note-taking. Probably inefficiently.
