Going beyond the surface

Facility, diversion, newness; passing from one thing to the next: doing six things at once is part of the condition of modern life. An economy based on consumption demands it. Yet concentration, going deeply into detail and staying with something is necessary to satisfaction. Excellence, quality and depth come from long hours of engagement, reflection and development; trying, changing and retrying.

“Look at a leaf for four hours? You must be kidding!”

“We already did that last week!”

How to encourage and foster concentration and an eye for detail? How to develop a sense of quality and taste without while allowing for experimentation, evolution and the young taste for fashion and newness?
