Slack times are part of business. Times when one, or one’s daughter get sick. Times when internal matters couldn’t seem to be resolved. Times when one can’t get hold of inspiration. Times when one’s tempted to stay on low-key and just go with the flow. Times when one wonders if everything’s really onto the right direction. Times when one gets stuck and seems like nothing is moving forward.
