“Can I allow my focus to stray from this?”

This week, I was noticing a tendency for people to be working on things not necessarily related to their design. Certainly, everybody was working on their designs at some point. However, there were also moments when students would stray away from their designs, sometimes for things unrelated, but often for related and important things. Graham, for example, was having troubles getting his designs to save. Michael often had to stray from designing to work with the 3D printers. However we all seemed to come to the conclusion that our designs were bound to get better, and didn’t need focus constantly.
