It is a truism, but worth repeating. Just because something is complicated doesn’t mean that it is important. But apparently, human nature makes it seem so most of the time. We get into the details before we assess the overall context. Oops. As a result, it is hard to keep our attention focused on simple things. It is harder still when those simple things are difficult to realize (;ole keeping relationships meaningful). This brings us to that great saying — applicable in more situations than any other — to take things one step at a time. Doing this religiously opens up the mind to assessments of process, which is always helpful.
So as I travel back to Estonia, I will be thinking about that and hope you will too!
