More on Structure
If you’re too structured you’ll end up focused on money and practicalities and efficiency and this will leave you dry. You might build your structure around a real inspiration and realization, even a breakthrough. It seemed the right thing to do, the right foundation, the right decision. However, the structure and activities that follow are not the same as the inspiration itself. It eventually goes stale, becomes routine and you wonder what went wrong. The vision was good, how could the offshoots go bad? Wasn’t this the right way to go about things? And then to escape you run to the television, the computer, phoning people, activities, socializing, and on and on. But you are not content because you feel something is wrong.
Well, you can’t drop everything. Give yourself space to look at it all objectively. One can work within the structure, but not be so attached to it. Perhaps approach it with a more playful look and see attitude. This will relieve the pressure. Your structure should be a vehicle, not an end. You’ll forget, but then you’ll remember. Try to have enough courage to hold onto this attitude.
