Pull-quote: "There's a gap between thinking and doing. The gap grows through fears about building the wrong thing or not knowing how to start. It manifests through excessive research, questions to colleagues, and theories and predictions about how something should be built. All of this, to circumvent failure in its many forms. Shortening the gap means overcoming these fears by accepting that failure is unavoidable—something to harness rather than fear"

Loosen your reality anchors.
I can't quite get this one right, and so it hasn't gone to publication yet. If you have any feedback on what isn't working -- because something isn't -- I'd apprecaite it.

Some beautiful, challenging projects that are well worth making.

Our daughter (9) was so excited she hugged me and said "I love maths!"

One of her homework questions was: "Tom spends £2 on 10p and 20p stamps. He buys three times as many 10p stamps as 20p stamps. How many of each did he buy?"

It's a standard sort of question that usually makes me sigh and reach for some algebra and start rearranging equations. But she'd seen a simpler way, which was this:

If he'd bought just one 20p stamp, and thus three 10p stamps, he would have spent 50p. So he must have done that four times, to make £2. Done.

It's a small but significant insight, and she experienced the joy of seeing it for herself.
