Discovery



Figuring out that new something, the new
direction, or the difference in what
you're doing, can be a brain-wracking
experience
Especially when you have been in a nice,
comfortable pattern that's worked well
for so long, leading to a semblance
Of normalcy for the state you were in,
but times have now changed so that the
well-worn path will not work
Now, necessitating a radical retooling
of processes or revisiting of thought
patterns that doesn't look to shirk
The need for different, even bold
actions to address the current
circumstances in which one might find
himself
Ultimately leading to the desired
breakthrough or click-over that solves
the difficulty rather than leaving it
on a shelf
