Spreading yourself thinly

From a comment by Paul Graham on Lemondor

…And it is very dangerous to work on too many things. It really struck me when I learned the etymology of “fritter.” It doesn’t mean to waste your time, but to divide it between too many things. But since that has the same result, frittering away your time has come to mean wasting it.
