It’s good to focus—in fact, essential if we want to be effective and get something done.
But sometimes we need to focus on the whole, not just a part.
And that’s often our problem. We narrow our vision to something we think we can work on; something we specialise in.
It may only be by holding all the pieces together we see where the breakthroughs are. The system may only make sense when seen in the whole; when the fragmentary parts are integrated.
Focus doesn’t have to mean narrow. It can also mean clear.
And so it could be broad, and include the whole.
Of course, any “whole” is always part of something else, but that’s another story.
