“You’re not a perfectionist. You’re insecure about how your best effort will be received.”

This is one of those quotes that took the wind out of me a little the first time I read it.
“His mind is a thousand ball bearings in a biscuit tin.”
My wife and I often have conversations about what it’s like in our minds. Hers is loud, perhaps something like this biscuit tin. Mine is quiet.
I’ve been thinking about an analogy for the quiet that I experience for a few days and I’m stuck on the image of a slide projector. There’s one thing in focus at a time with others queued up for later. Occasionally it gets stuck and the slide in focus isn’t the one that’s supposed to be shown.
“Simplicity is the end result of long, hard work; not the starting point.”
💬 Frederick Maitland
