Lessons and ideas

Some of the greatest lessons are the ones that no one can teach you. It’s possible that people can push you in the direction of the epiphany, but you experience the revaluation for yourself.

The key to having frequent revelatory moments is putting yourself in a position to receive them. Ideas come to those who appreciate them when they come, so your job is to do something with them when they do.

Do you write ideas down when you wake up or when they arrive? Discuss them with a fiend or mentor when they’re compelling enough? Act on them immediately and work on reducing the friction between inspiration and action?
Or do you allow the thoughts to pass through your consciousness as though they were never there?

Inspiration is precious and we should position ourselves accordingly. Good ideas come freely to those who create an inviting environment for them.
