Getting back on Track

by Kieran Healy on March 2, 2006

Via “Bitch Ph.D”: some advice on recovering from “going AWOL”:, i.e., catching back up again after becoming overcommitted and falling way behind on promised deadlines, etc. A much better name — and solution — for this problem, which alas I can’t claim credit for, is “Declaring Intellectual Bankruptcy.”

The problem stated is a familiar one for associates in law firms, as well as academics — I wouldn’t be surprised if it weren’t common to most intellectual professions. (I’m generalizing madly. The above should be read as “Hey, I’m AWOL right now!”)

Steve: get caught up on backlog, you mean? Sure, that would be nice all round, wouldn’t it….
