The question at the heart of every community
"How do we pursue our idea with steadfastness, passion, and vigor, all the while maintaining a sort of non-attachment to outcome, and willingness to adapt?"
A well-articulated question that I, too, am navigating. It reminds me of what Nir Eyal wrote in Indistractable about inputs: we can decide what to put IN to a given idea or project, but we can't control what comes OUT. We still need to plan and (as you said) remain dedicated, but there's always the risk of idolizing the outcome.
I'm still learning to get excited about the prospect of discovering what the outcome will be instead of being disappointed when it's not what I expected. It's a journey!
Love this, thank you for sharing and putting words to this beautiful concept.
YES, Dan, YES!!
