What it taught me was no matter how good at it you are, the results are mixed, not consistent no matter how process oriented you are about it. The reason is because of things like the above. We can't predict the future. We can't think around every corner.
Amen !

I see a paradoxical inverse relationship between the extent to which i may have become secure and confident in my technical abilities ... and ... the extent to which I could enter a state of FUD facing a new project/challenge ... and ... the unleashing of creativity, and out-of-the-box thinking. Of course, I don't mean self-confidence in the broader sense: I speak of FUD that hones the blade of reason Smile | :)

At the same time, creative "exaltation," as you have novel insights, carries the risk so perfectly embodied in the Narcissus story.

I was lucky that my professional work usually gave me complete freedom to do "architect" whatever, because no one else understood my specialties (the PostScript language, color science, printing).

These daze, I would never claim to have been an "architect" in the profound way I believe Marc Clifton is !
