Form: Static purity or dynamic flow?

It just occurred to me that I have been pursuing Form in business and life as a static purity to be obtained by stripping away all that is unnecessary, akin to this and Platonic solids.

But, after this week of dynamic change and refocusing at work, I’m coming to realize that Form is probably more accurately seen as the aggragate across time and space of a dynamic flow around geometric points.  Like this and this.

Yvon Chouinard, CEO of Patagonia, sees this too: the focus on the immediate flow v. focusing on the purity of the end state, nicely summarized here.

This approach certainly feels more free, easy, and invigorating than focusing on grinding toward an austere future perfection.
