In public health, let the dough rise slowly (but not too slowly)

In problem‐solving, being distracted can be a good thing. The tendency is to be drawn in to an analytic and reductionist assessment of what we are faced with, when intuition and affective awareness of what is impacting on the community can give real insights into what the real way forward is. Sleep on it, reflect and listen.
