@kulturnation I just have problems with building small ideas into big ideas and it’s almost like there’s a mental block once I’ve hit the button.

@colinwalker Many small ideas can be just as interesting as fewer large ones. None of them are better than the other, just different. And you can't build the large without at least a few small ones.

@colinwalker I think this at least partially has to do with how you process thoughts and ideas. Personally, I find that writing lets me actually understand issues that interest me and that, over time, I'm better able to develop more sophisticated thinking on issues I care about.

@colinwalker I have trained myself to always move on to other things when I feel stuck, and have a system (todoist or a notebook) to make sure I get back to it at a later point. @kulturnation
