The Value Of Clarity

There are many qualities to being human that one might want to develop to live life at its best. If there’s one lesson I have learned during this initial year of being self-employed, it is the value of clarity.

One could possess any or all of the imaginable qualities but would be likely to waste them without clarity. For instance, one might be immensely persistent, but without clarity, their persistence might be extended towards a dead-end job. Similarly, one could be commendably tolerant, but without clarity, they might extend their tolerance to toxic people or situations, which might not be very helpful.

Life is dynamic, which demands that we balance the qualities we possess dynamically. I see clarity as being the scale we use to balance and give shape to our qualities. Like the scale in our kitchens, clarity can help us make the most optimum use of an ingredient (quality).
