There are times in a project or in a relationship when things seem to go awry. I’ve learned that going dark isn’t the answer, although sometimes that’s really what I want to do…retreat! Rest! Make it stop!Â Â
If, however, you do find yourself going dark, be careful…things go feral quickly. I was once sick for a week and moping around home and a friend visited, took a look at my ratsnest hair, my slumpy sweats, the Advil and tissues laying about and the mess of unwashed dishes and asked “what the hell is going on? Have you gone feral?!”Â
So when Rachel advised us to watch guard against projects doing this, it had particular resonance.
