Begin Again

Professions are complex. From outside it looks solid.

Entrepreneur. Lawyer. Designer. Accountant. Developer.

Once we dig in we discover its diversity. Subtle differences become stark contrasts.

We discover, explore, and absorb skills and ideas one after another.

The parts coalesce. Patterns direct our actions. We recompose our thoughts and behaviors.

This is a dangerous moment.

When our vision is clear, we are blind.

When our field is explored, we are lost.

When we have arrived, we must begin again.
