Creating the Seed

I started working on quite a few different projects in the past, whether in my personal or professional life, and the beginning often felt overwhelming. I did not know enough, or did not have a specific enough idea. There were too many moving parts. Pick your poison. I noticed over the years that this feeling came from taking on too much at once.

When You Dont Have Much Time

Tonight, I find myself with little time to both write and work on my project. This will be a quick one.
