They say that if you get too much into the details, you will miss the bigger picture. Perhaps, that is right. But that doesnt mean that you cannot be creative. If you have an eye for the details, or you are a keen observer of the facts, then wouldnt you naturally see the missing facts as well? Isnt that one of the key of solving a problem (ever read Sherlock Holmes)? Will that also be an inventive, or innovative way to see what’s missing on the planet? Isnt that what we call creative?
Who was that said, “God is in the details”? I would add to that: “God is in the non-details as well”. (Aw, did I just prove that God is everywhere? I hate relational algebra, but I love indexed)
