Reflection is editing for thoughts.
Each new idea is a first draft. It lacks context and clarity.
"I want to rent a smaller apartment."
Reflection allows me to ask:
- Do I need a new place to live?
- Why do I think that my current home is too large?
- Are there costs to living in less space?
Each reflection is a revision. A best-deciding idea may take dozens of reflections.
