My Curiosity drags me into Rabbit Holes

I'm quite frustrated right now. I feel unproductive because I'm easily distracted by EVERYTHING online. It is easy to find something interesting papers and books and before I know what has happened I run out of time to finish my tasks.

As Kathryn Schulz observed for The New Yorker in 2015, rabbit hole has further evolved into a metaphor for extreme distraction in the digital age: “These days, however, when we say that we fell down the rabbit hole, we seldom mean that we wound up somewhere psychedelically strange. We mean that we got interested in something to the point of distraction—usually by accident, and usually to a degree that the subject in question might not seem to merit.”

I was told to regard my curiosity as a great strength, but now I have to be careful about it. The biggest strength might turn out to be the biggest weakness as well.
