True confession—this is what my outer chaos looks like most days.
Ever since I started this blog a year ago, I’ve been drowning in books, papers, and sticky notes. I find myself researching a wide array of sources and don’t want to lose track of important thoughts. My aim is to pull ideas together in new ways. That seems to mean I have to amass a of ideas before I can recombine and distill them. It’s a messy process, but that’s how I work.
Recently I became aware that the volume of idea clutter had become overwhelming. It was no longer helpful. It was causing me stress.
