There are moments when I get a glimpse of a total picture. In more mundane moments, I check tasks off my list, incrementally progressing towards... something. But there are moments when I, or someone I work with, realizes something whole. All of a sudden, the process of getting from where I am now to fulfilling a vision becomes seamless. I get in a flow, the vision of what I’m working towards eclipsing the banality of what might otherwise be an absolutely mundane task.
As I work, things change, the nuts and bolts of what I’m making become far different from what I imagined before I started. Challenges arise. Regardless, that moment of complete understanding drives me forward.
