Making mint tea is a fine art.
If the leaves are left in too long, they become limp, lifeless, and the water, once steaming, quickly becomes cold.
A cup of overflavoured leafy lukewarm water is not so delicious.
Remove the mint too soon though, and the tea is barely flavoured at all. You may as well just drink hot water.
It’s the same with our creative work.
We need to be engaged in each project just long enough to give it our full, glorious essence, but not so long that it becomes tepid, unappealing and overflavoured.
