As we develop and change, inevitable gaps will develop between a future self and the present one. The eventual goal is self-actualization: a healthy equilibrium between how we see ourselves and how the world sees us. By 'seeing,' we imply a harmony (/negotiation) between our different modes—the invisible personas in the room: the project manager, the business person, the designer.
If solitude is the place of sweet creativity, where language is not needed, the external world (where things get done) is the opposite. All we have is language (implicit or explicit).
We suggest moving from binary thinking to thoughtfulness. The same is true about oscillation, self-actualization, and navigating 'getting things done.'
This week's prompt is:
Where do you look for yourself?
