The danger I try to avoid is getting overly attached to any particular system. I find what’s good, notice what’s flawed (to me) and continue searching.
It’s easy to get sucked into a system that ‘makes so much sense’. I can feel the pull when it happens. Same pull I get when a TV show starts hooking me. [it’s why I swore of most TV a few years ago, except Doctor Who].
I have to stay on my toes and stay nimble, as I don’t want to become an apologist for any particular system until I’m fully comfortable living with the worst of its flaws.
Oh absolutely. That’s why I allow myself to adhere to _some_ strict philosophies tongue emoticon
I allow myself to be hypocritical for example and to be inconsistent.
It’s not always easy, mind you. I’m always in an internal battle of perfection vs available time, so I’m always having to settle for “close enough”.
Yet, I wouldn’t tell EVERYBODY to settle for ‘close enough’ – if they happen to have the time/energy to shoot for perfection.
