I wrote a long section in Individual Performance in a Simple Functional Ecosystem on Functional Ecosystems. But it really belongs in a different chapter. Good stuff, though.
I find that my writing productivity and effectivenss are highest if I allow myself to follow my thoughts and curiousity rather than force myself to stick to the original topic or writing plan. This author’s workbench helps me do that because I can easily rearrrange and reorganize what I write and there is a place for everything, even “off topic” things.
