“I’m interested in achieving a goal, nothing else – producing a result, solving a puzzle, penetrating a secret.”

Pablo Picasso


How can we really tell when we should focus on the details and when to have the bigger picture in mind?…

  1. I half like Picasso – but the quote here was nice – and good point – the assessing of details vs larger picture – a time for both! Hmmmmm
    And love the nature here

  2. Analytic thinking, parts of a whole, address each detail for whether it belongs and then how significant. If a detail isn’t significant, why is it in the work? Think of unnecessary words in a story or poem. Isn’t every detail of a painting or sculpture important to the work?

    1. Each detail needs to be just right for the whole to work properly, I agree. Yet I find myself obsessing over certain details in real life, spending so much time and energy on them, that I don’t even mind the bigger picture anymore… Balance and perspective are definitely necessary.
