Fifty-Five

Details. The devil is in them as they say… And I fucking hate managing details. I’m a big-picture personality. I envision large-scale ideas, creative concepts, and initiatives. This can be a big strength. But, I can get bogged down in the minutia of certain details required to achieve the bigger vision sometimes. This can be a weakness. And this is also honest.

I understand the importance of laying a strong foundation, ensuring accuracy, to cover your bases, to connect all the necessary dots to set yourself up for success, and to set yourself apart. I get it. I endorse it.

Some details are very important of course, but some are less so. Some are just busy work disguised as “quality control” that do little more but empower little people into feeling faux-powerful. When one’s life becomes about sweating the formatting of a form to file in a binder for example, then I’m looking forward to finding a new formula. I’m looking forward to finding a new vision. How about you?

Stay tuned-in…

Drowning in the details? Encumbered by the unimportant? Tormented by tedium? Getting nickeled and dimed to death? Everyone’s been there. These are the times when you get so immersed in the trivial that you lose sight of the bigger picture.

These are tricky times. These are dangerous times. The danger is the loss of your fucking soul. The danger is the loss of your passion for what’s truly important to YOU. The danger is the resulting insensitivity that can come across to others that you care about. The danger is becoming a lesser version of yourself that you don’t like…

So tend to the trivial, but be sure you’re protecting your purpose; your passion; your primary reason(s) for doing whatever you’re doing in the first place. Do this by maintaining healthy boundaries between your vocation and your avocations. Draw lines; have limits; and leave things when necessary. Live a life worth living by always making time for the things you love. Nothing else really matters…
