Putting words to images.
I don’t know who the sculptor is but I can all too easily relate to the idea behind it.
To make progress with any undertaking there needs to be co-operation and communication. When this is absent you can never be sure who’s supposed to be pushing and who should be pulling. The end result is stagnation.
I’ve experienced this many times both in and out of my workplace.
Feelings of being stuck are enemies of creativity and wellbeing. Sometimes all it takes is the realisation that all the time you’ve been pushing hard when you should be pulling ( or vice versa).
And sometimes you just need to let go!
