When reporters say they are finding loose ends or trouble in documenting specific points, there is often an underlying issue of focus. Losing focus can lead to overreach as well as dispersion and loss of impact, as secondary themes suck up time and primary themes remain incomplete. Our goal for today is to see what matters and what can be put aside for another future story.
