Circle vs. Square

    I have this philosophy that anything in life is either a circle thing or a square thing.  Anything in life being acts or steps or parts of your day, but to me their more like the categories on my to-do-list.  Problems, I find, are either simple to solve using logical steps or are complex to solve requiring multiple often unconnected and potentially stressful steps.  I think of square problems as easy like when you were at school.  You had to do your math homework one problem at a time, get it right, and then move on.  A circle problem came later, maybe in college where you had to prove that theorem using all the little pieces of the puzzle you had learned over the years.  You might have to ask your professor questions, create something new, or just keep guessing until an answer emerged.     

    Besides the fact that kindergarten had naps, I like the square problem.  It's just a checklist, not a thesis.  So why these shapes and not just some things in life are hard and some are easy.  I'm a bit of a visual person and I love objects.  I love playing with Lego's, bouncing balls and running around.  Stacking a bunch of Lego's is much easier than stacking a bunch of soccer balls.  The square problem just sits there on the table, waiting to get blown away.  The circular problem is always moving, making you stress out about where it might roll and thinking about how to even approach it.  I just think a cube knows where it is, it's planted, on terra firma.  The ball is going where it wants, you have little say in the matter.  That lack of control makes all the difference.     

    So what's the answer?  How do we handle tough, stressful situations?  Do we make them into small sqaure steps instead of round rocks across a river?  That is a whole post unto itself, maybe for another time.  I just like to warm up with some easy brick building and then when I've warmed up I can exercise my brain with circular problems.  We'll see how that works out.
