Your process — of creation, of thinking, of being — belongs to you and only you, and to discuss your process for understanding the world, and for coping within its spinning — is something you should never do, because nobody but you comprehends the when and the why of how you get things done to contextualize meaning.

The private process becoming public is more difficult when you’re paid to produce — and those paying you expect a certain behavior of consumption and production and reportage that may or may not fit into your node of productivity.

The best thing to do when there’s a conflict of process is to tell the opposing party whatever they want or need to hear so you can make sure you can still get your stuff done as necessary.  Some people think about a topic for a long time and then the answer arrives in a split second blitz and all is right and good with the world.

Others prefer to plod and plot every thought — and create a long paper trail of musings that helps them know what they wondered and where they’ve left behind breadcrumbs. There’s no idea that doesn’t deserve exhaustive examination.

You can imagine how a blitz thinker and a plodder doer would get along in the real world when tasked together — and that’s the problem — because negotiation only hinders each genius side of the compressive dyad. Sometimes, teams and groups do not serve the general public good together, and working apart, but still connected, can keep every private process pristine and enjoyable.

The trick to getting things done is to set deadlines and then let the people process their intentions and directives as needed.  Some need a lot of pressure and outside influence, while others remain blissfully internal and ignited.

Don’t judge the process — only evaluate the end result for effectiveness — and defend your territorial right to think and do and wish and dream as needed in order to accomplish the moment at hand.
