Throw It Back Into the Pond

An interesting metaphor came to mind the other day related to fishing. No I am not someone who indulges in the sport. I happily eat fish that others have already caught. Anyway, it's the idea of throwing back into the water the ones that are too small to meet the minimum requirements allowing them to be kept.

This applies to governed locations where the Powers That Be are seeking to perpetuate the edible species that swim. I'm not referring to less civilized or more sparsely populated regions where people do what they do to survive and thrive (though this metaphor is expanding the more I'm considering it.).

Anyway, you get an idea. You get millions of ideas. You feel that every single one of them must be included in what you write. Well, you don't need every single on of them in one document in order to produce something worth keeping. Some of the ideas need to get thrown back into the pond for them to mature a bit, to get big enough to meet the minimum requirements for keeping them. When they get bigger, you can fish them out of the water again for the next product. Interesting perspective when you look at it that way, isn't it?

Until next time,
Paulette -- wisely capturing ideas and fish
