This will likely be a short piece due the fact there isn't much to say but aside from that I think it's worth some attention as I think many people have a lot of ideas but get in bad habits due to the nature of their ideas.

I'll be going through some of the challenges I faced with this.


Generalization

I often wonder why the whole world is so prone to generalise. Generalisations are seldom if ever true and are usually utterly inaccurate.
— Agatha Christie, Murder at the Vicarage

With a concept I was toying with this past month I often found I got in the terrible habit of generalizing a lot of things. I quickly came to the conclusion that I should think very carefully about these sort of things when it's a perspective your not used to. I guess it's proof that generalizing can easily happen, because I never thought I would fall for the trap easily but I did.

Morality 

Compassion is the basis of morality.
— Arthur Schopenhauer

While your personal definition of what is right or wrong can be different to mine it doesn't mean I have to judge you strongly on it. That was another mistake I made while I was conceptualizing this new idea, I kept thinking in terms of my personal morality and forgot that while morality can't be helped it's bad to push yours over someone else's with the core components. So I think to add to this it isn't a bad thing to have your morality mirrored in your ideas, But when it can effect the core aspects of your idea you should tread carefully.

Risk

Of course I’ll hurt you. Of course you’ll hurt me. Of course we will hurt each other. But this is the very condition of existence. To become spring, means accepting the risk of winter. To become presence, means accepting the risk of absence
— Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Manon, Ballerina

The risk of doing this particular project is something I had to keep in mind as well. It isn't something life threatening, but it's something relating to the idea itself that makes it a risk. I'm not trying to push the idea that only specific types of projects can be  a risk but when I say risk I mean a different type of risk that (as the piece's heading says) offends.

final note:
Not many I will most likely reflect on this article later on down the line when this project (may eventually soon) is more open.
