Showing results for tags 'too much detail'.
This came up in another thread, and I thought it might deserve a little attention of its own. I've noticed on this forum (and others) what I consider almost obsessive attention to minute details, and have been wondering when does it matter, and when does it not matter. Where is that 'line'? I think, if you want to produce a great product, you need to be aware of all these details, but if it ultimately doesn't matter, how much of your time are you going to devote to it? So...since I don't make violins...but I make other stuff...I am using a knitting example of my own. I'm surprised at how well knitting compares to violin making... So there are actually two questions mashed together: 1. How much time should you devote to details? 2. Has the internet (as a discussion/teaching tool) stifled creativity - since it leads to a consensus that there is only 'one' right way to do something?
