For many people the efforts given over to seeking clarity bring rewards in the form of a deeper understanding of this or that. For others, on the contrary, their input remains unrewarded.
From a personal viewpoint, seeking clarity is oftentimes the first action to putting something into perspective.
As I imagine is the same for you, I invariably attempt to undertake a moment of clarification before committing to any activity or project. It helps to comprehend the context of a job, especially if being asked to invest much time and so forth in it.
Seeking clarity need not, however, be seen as an extra task to be completed before beginning the actual work. We could choose to see it as a core step to applying ourselves to the endeavour. In this way we may find out something useful, even if it is only that we need to look further.
A belief in the existence of what we are hoping to find when seeking clarity ensures we remain on track. Exploring without expecting to find anything, on the other hand, undermines us before we have started.
