Wise words from Danny Butt (for the record)
"Preparing for a course of study always involves making a relatively large proposition that inevitably falls apart as the process of making begins (at least, that is my experience both as a student and a supervisor). Every beginning is usually made in swampy terrain, often out of frustration from a no-longer bearable not-working rather than any clear direction! So in that way, I think it's valuable to think of the fear or the rut not as wasted time but the formation of potential, like the way a lightning storm doesn't just appear from a cloud, but is the result of a long feedback process of low-intensity ice-collisions that build charges that eventually lead to the lightning event."
