Every day, we are surrounded by abstract interpretations of what might work best for us-- 3 steps towards a life full of happiness, or 5 techniques for becoming a successful entrepreneur.
Learned practices, shared by others as a means of providing value, yet often overlooked and ignored for sometimes being undefined.

I dreamed, once, of designing a robot that could complete the entire process of washing and taking care of laundry. And, shared my idea with others who could help create it. But was met with resistance when being unclear and unwilling to define the ideal solution.

A dream, supported with purpose, will lead you to create. Develop your pillars and iterate your building blocks to make your dream a reality.
