Untangling headphones

Yanno how, whenever you put a pair of headphones into your pocket, they always come out all tangled up? It’s like, “Oh, great, I wanted to listen to music or a podcast, but now I get a puzzle instead.” I’m sure you’ve experienced that. We all have.

The only way to untangle that mess is to just … start. You pull one thing, nope, that didn’t work. You pull another, and yep, that’s a bit better. You pull and slide and push and prod, until finally, you have some semblance of plan, and then it all happens a lot faster until it’s what you wanted in the first place.

This is the creative process, perfectly summed up.
