When you’re schedule is jam pack…
When you’re running from meeting to meeting…
When you’re attention span is the size of a small grape…
It’s hard if not impossible to be creative.
Creativity thrives in breathing room.
Our best ideas usually come to us when we’re not trying to think of ideas at all.
Ideas come through space and silence, like a walk in the park.
They come through white noise that surrounds you, like the sound of water in the shower or the waves flowing on the shore of a beach.
Creativity is a fire that needs the right ingredients to work well. It needs oxygen and wood and a spark.
Value. Resonance in your life. Novelty. Connection.
You can get by on cranking things out and forcing creativity to show up, but to do it right, you’ve got to allow yourself the opportunity of a little breathing room in your life to really get to the good stuff.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
