Abstract Vs. Concrete

Common Understanding Vs. Command and Discipline

- What if our methods don't work as planned?
- Then we'll fix them!

Abstraction is good to bring our attention to relevant things. The bad thing is we need something concrete to work on, fix or upgrade! It's not the same to ask "2+2=?" than "If my wife and I will have two kids, how many dishes will we need in our table?"

In Delinquency spoiled everything and Feelings: like bacterias, I slightly touched the idea that "change might generate bad feelings, and these feelings tend to hide interesting opportunities."

I read "The Cathedral and The Bazaar" by Eric S. Raymond, in where, in essence, it is explained how successful could be a development model that includes every people with a desire to really help to improve something.

"NEW alternatives will ALWAYS appear as time passes by", Or, like Mr. Tom Chalko said in The Freedom Of Choice, "When you grow to understand more - new possibilities may arise and you need to be ready to admit them in your considerations". So, we need an Adjustment of Attitude, in order to take advantage of next upcoming options.

Thomas Edison said that "Nearly every man who develops an idea works it up to the point where it looks impossible, and then he gets discouraged. That's not the place to become discouraged." That's not the moment to lose motivation. When you find difficult obstacles in your art, you must do adjustments to either techniques or tools or attitude!

Never forget people! Somebody might know one way out!
