Turn Off the Internet

If you are stuck on a research problem, try working on it offline for at least an hour--maybe even more. Organizine and analyze what you already have. Transcribe documents. Confirm family structure. If research ideas come to you while doing this, write them down or type them in some sort of document. But do not perform any online searches. The constant temptation to "search" may be hindering your progress.
