illustration of small dots to represent details with magnifying glass showing the word "change"

During my career in the creative fields, I came to believe that projects requiring great detail work were somehow less important than high-level, conceptual work. There was a time and a place for both types of work, but I started to gravitate towards the detail work. And then I became okay with it. I discovered that I needed to put the details under a microscope to better understand them.

Where I once wanted to brush it all aside, I began studying specific events that taught me to adopt my current belief systems. As for the belief systems that didn’t contribute to my personal growth, I began taking gradual steps to identify and unlearn them. The work that I’m still doing – and will continue doing for probably the rest of my life – helps me to find more value in all the little, tiny details that must be addressed in order to make significant changes in my life.
