I invite complexity in to stay, and turn easy answers away at the door.
While I don't have any true complaints or regrets about this approach, I have, at different turns, become overwhelmed by the continuation of questions that seem to multiply as prolifically as rabbits.
Within my business, there have been so many things I've wanted to do, so many great ideas, so many imagined projects, so many plans! But in more cases than I would like to admit, my ceaseless grasping at the larger connections and the inter-relationships of my work at every turn has, in many cases, gotten in the way.
In fact, it's gotten in the way often enough, that over the last few months, I became wary of my own ideas, my own thinking, my own desire to start anything for fear of where it would (or wouldn't) lead.
Now, after a muddled trek through the wariness, I've arrived at a new appreciation of simplicity and clarity.
As I dig back in, I will be working to develop my own capacity to maintain a simplicity of focus within my work, to envision not just the idea of a project, but a clear set of steps that gets me from initiation to completion.
I will continue to maintain and grow the broad scope of interests and talents that I've pursued, but hopefully get a little bit better about spotting the wayward tangents before I reach their dead end.
