Often too, the difference between a seemingly ordinary work and an extraordinary work is a small sideways step. ...Recognising that can only happen when people are able to tap into their ~own~ deep resources (1)."

I found it helpful and enlightening.
I think oftentimes
(particularly if you are
'raised' to color in between
the lines~ like I was...)
that the small sidestep
(the author is referring to)
is often mistaken for a misstep.
But its really not.
What are your thoughts (on this?)
And thanks for dropping by.
