In the end, the whole thing is made of details. From the font size to the typeface to the web design to the product page to the product specification to the implementation plan to the design guide to the machining tolerances to the contract schedules to the everything. Every piece of the pie, in ever detail, lain out and connected in exactly the right order.

In the beginning, forget the detail. It’s time is coming but it isn’t now.

The beginning is the time for broad brushes, blocking in, concepts, directions of travel.

The beginning is the time to get things straight-ish.

The beginning is the time for setting things up precisely to knock them down and learn along the way. The details don’t matter.

In the beginning, the only thing that matters is finding a path to understanding.

Skippy strategy: Put finding balance ahead of closing details.
