2021/5/20 Usefulness needs context. Things with many functions may be attractive but will those functions be put to use? Is a good list of things to consider applicable to what you are currently doing? Do you imagine some information you come across will be useful to someone else or is it useful to you? If it doesn't help you take action, it is a distraction. It's true you need goals in order to be distracted from them. You can wander down side streets on an exploratory walk, it's only being sidetracked if you have a destination that you are moving toward.
