As we work together on projects- at work, at school, at plans or whatever – someone plays the role of writer and someone plays the role of editor.
The writer sits on the clouds of her mind and sings the song of her heart. With carefree bliss, she creates a direction or inspires a movement.
On the other hand, the editor structures the plan and develops the system for execution. He is grounded and focused on ensuring that things are done the right way.
Both are equally important to the process and depend on each other to develop something beautiful. But one of the most important things to note is that they are two very different people. The writer is the flower, basking in the glory of the sun and soaking up its goodness, the editor is the gardener.
Which are you? More importantly, which are you in this moment?
