Today I reflect on a photo I took during a short jaunt to the Tiong Bahru area.

I spotted this eye-catching exterior near a bakery and took a few snapshots. The closeup provides less detail, but more focus. The wider shot provides more context, but it is busier.

The same could be said about implementing change or learning something new. Diving deep provides focus, but we might ignore other important details. However, trying to take everything in might leave you paralysed on what to start with.

The trick is to skilfully and strategically use both. How and when to do this takes experience honed by failed attempts and reflective practice.
