Create clarity for yourself but stay connected to your creativity. The trick is to do what needs to be done without crucifying yourself in the process. Stay in the flow.
Yes, there is a science to it to some degree but thinking of it more as an art form –a structure that you create and apply to your own needs and style – seems to me a better understanding of the process.
And it’s personal, it’s unique, its your own interpretation of structure. You are the artist masterfully arranging the elements. And as with any other art form, you cultivate and develop the art of organizing with practice, over time.
