I've been naval gazing a lot about the philosophy of 'direction' over the past few months, specifically the direction that we choose to take in our lives, with work, with consumer choices and what ultimately helps us make our decisions.
Inevitably we'll all reach a point where we are going to be unsure about the future, and what the outcome will be. Naturally we're inclined to be optimistic and head towards the better of our possible outcomes based entirely on gut feeling.
Recently, work commitments saw me consider the option of relocating to another city, and I considered it intently, though couldn't come to a solid conclusion because I didn't know what my life goals were clearly enough. I didn't move and it turned out to be the wrong thing to do.
When it comes to the digital space, project management hits similar roadblocks on a daily basis with someone, usually the Executive Producer, being there to assist with making the right decision on direction—usually under great amounts of pressure—and also based on gut feeling.
