The effect of creation occurs is a mystery. Without , it won't occur and if there is no goal, there can be no ideas for an endeavour. Once I have that I genuinely feel are my own and are worthwhile, then another mystery occurs. I find myself even more to pursue them. Creation works both ways.is to bring into being. How this

As long as I am part of the group (family, society, association, discipline, organization), I have little option, but usually I don't want an option. It is just the way things are.

If I am an unwilling participant in this group, and the group knows, then it would become uncomfortable. It would mean reduced support for me and my endeavour, or possibly antagonism if I seem to be an apostate. In any case, the group's view can be powerfully expressed in relation to .

By determiningand being comfortable with relevant , I feel as if I know what my endeavour is about. But this is just the bare bones of a conception. It's an idea—and ideas are cheap and easy.
My conception needs to be fleshed out so there is something others can take seriously. I have to Whatever it is If the endeavour is becoming a parent, the account will look very different than if it is a new internet application. You must imagine your own endeavour to bring these topics alive., the two key processes for a successful passage to the drawing board are clarification and confirmation.—to myself as well as to others—by producing accounts: informal and formal or technical. These make it clear what I am aiming at, what its value is, and how I think it can work practically, socially, technically and financially.
Similarly, my are too abstract and general to shape my of the potential endeavour. And my focused accounts will not affect those doctrines and social norms either.

To be comfortable, I must feel confident about the endeavour as it is shaping up. It needs to reflect my views, my principles, my preferences and my understanding. Where necessary, I must be ready to put my stamp on it whatever others may say. So I not only evaluate and adjust the endeavour conception at the outset, I also continue that process as the endeavour, my ideas and events evolve.

Now, the crucial question: Is the die cast?According to Suetonius, Julius Caesar said in Latin "Iacta alea est" when he crossed the Rubicon river with his army on the way to Rome. The law required Military Commanders to leave their forces beyond the Rubicon. By breaking the law in this way, Caesar was in effect committing himself to his endeavour: to return in triumph to Rome, to overthrow the Senate and eventually to become Emperor of the Roman Empire.
The next step down from the Centre generates actualization. So this is a crucial moment of choice and commitment. Having adjusted the envisaged endeavour to my preferences and experience, and having adjusted myself to accepting a detailed practical version of the endeavour in principle, I must now choose to make it happen.
