Random insight

There's a lady I know who is having trouble with her graduate work. She complains that there's just way too much reading and it's hard to get through all she is supposed to read.

At the same time, I have a complaint about her. She runs meetings badly. Her meetings tend to veer of course and rarely end on time. Longtime readers know that this habit drives CC up a wall.

And I realized the other day that both issues are about not being able to go through information and pick out what's important.

I suspect her graduate work will help with this. But I was pleased with myself that I figured that out.

You're right. IMHO, grad school reading is all about the effective skim. You buy all those books and keep them because you know someday you'll want to take more time with them, but you also know- regretfully-- that now is not that time.

PB, wistfully wishing for more reading time as she slogs through her doctorate while doing parish ministry full-time.
