Reflect and do or do and reflect?

The secret to diagnosing the problem with a broken scene lies in the subtext.*
(Robert McKee)

Each society and each individual usually explores only a tiny fraction of their horizon of possibility.**
(Yuval Noah Harari)

The issue may not be the problem being faced but how you are able to respond to it.

Reflect/do are not either/or but both/and. Whether you are a more reflection- or action-based person, reflection is always necessary to finding and facing the real issue and moving forward.
