The rain stayed away for a few weeks, slowing the water flowing through the feeder creeks. The main creek looked still on top even though water flowed through little stick dams. A strange contrast….significant movement while appearing still.
Projects, product development, idea development, and much more can have a significant amount of progress and forward movement while seeming like nothing is moving from the outside. That’s often why big developments seem to come out of nowhere. A lot of activity has been going on for a long time, but those on the outside only saw stillness.
