Then I have a moment, and I get caught up. Then I'm waiting for people to make moves. Then because I'm waiting i pick up more games, or join more Tourneys. Then I'm still waiting for more moves so i pick up even more games.
Then life hits me, and I end u ...[text shortened]... many games, but dammit i wanted those games when I was caught up.
And the cycle continues.
Never allow yourself to get caught up, take more time finding a move. If you never get caught up, you wont feel the need to start more games.
Even after a long think, you don't have to make a move, just leave yourself some notes and come back later. This way you'll always have games you can sink your teeth into. You'll play a bit better too.
When things get too busy, you can always just blitz out the moves to avoid time out and hopefully you'll have some notes to help.
