Pursuing Lagon - Finding Balance Between Extremes

These days it is not uncommon to feel overwhelmed by the sheer amount of, well… everything. We seem to tackle our daily problems by adding more processes, more policies, more systems, and more work-in-process. This ends up accumulating disappointment instead of success when we don’t stop to understand what gets in our way. We don’t consider that, at least some of the time, more isn’t always better.
