I have a problem.
There’s this one Mexican restaurant I keep walking by. Through the windows, I see their curtains, which are coloured green, white, green. And I keep thinking:
“Guys, change just one of those and you’ve got a Mexican flag! How great would that be?”
Of course, in reality, this is none of my damn business.
But I can’t help myself. I’m a fixer. You probably are too.
We have absolutely no problem thinking of fixing other people’s projects, but our own? We have no idea what to do. Somehow, our own projects are never as obvious.
Maybe we need to form a collective or something. Create little, incremental changes for each other. Push the envelope just a bit. Maybe learn how to see our projects from the outside, who knows.
If this compulsion isn’t going away, we might as well do something creative with it, right?
