The Undiscovered Country

The Undiscovered Country is not a Shakespearean death metaphor, and it’s not a future where humans and Klingons get along. The Undiscovered Country is a place inside your head, a tenuously-held position that is periodically shelled by the forces of doubt, worry, and amorphous anxiety. It’s not a comfortable place, but it’s better than retreating or blundering forward in a clumsy stumble toward doom. Fortify, plan, act, and bring that zone of creative tension along as you make a coordinated advance. Avoid the extremes of complacency and fear to the point of inaction. Don’t get caught doing nothing, but don’t do any old thing just for the sake of doing it. Make it count.
