12.8.5. Dreaming: Reality (Persist)

Fig. 12.8 The Dream Sequence
As you move close and close to real solutions, split your mind in two and hold the two parts both separate and together.
In the first half of the split, think of practicalities, from how you will get parts made to costs and timescales. Also seek out more sub-problems and find answers to these, as you spiral inwards towards the final solution.

Maintain your passion when others might give up, for it is only when we cast our
eyes downwards and give up that we fail.
