I’ve heard people make the joke for years that a struggle to focus is some sort of mild disorder. If you wander off topic a lot, you know what I am talking about. But what if it’s actually a sign of high creative thinking? What if you could harness your nomadic mind?
When you’ve got a good idea, and you’re using it and it’s developing, the temptation is to hold on to it until you can get it completely sorted out and organized for consumption. This is another form of self-glory, one of the lies that steals creativity, because it’s a self-protection mechanism that convinces you about your own hero status. It’s better to publish than to publish perfectly.
