Finding Inspiration

zlHiVHW9Bw0LJX9“You can’t wait for inspiration, you have to go after it with a club.” – Jack London

Don’t sit and wait for inspiration to come to you. It would be like wanting something exciting to happen but you just sit at home watching TV. It is like discovering a beautiful landscape or stunning scenery, you can only find it by going out into the world and going places you’ve never been.

Inspiration doesn’t come to you, you have to pursue it. You have to chase after it because it’s only going to be found by someone who wants to find it.

Inspiration, Day 7

1.) Greg Buchanan playing the harp
2.) run a marathon
3.)This video intrigues me

Now I’m going to take all the inspirations and find ways to surround myself with these in my daily life.

Now, I’m going to take the things I said I wanted to accomplish and organize them in a list and put them in order of importance and post that list in your work space. What steps do you need to take to make them happen?

Finally, I need to look at the list of things that intrigue me and discover what is it about them that you find interesting? You might jot down a few notes about each one and see if there are any connections between them.

After a week or two of doing these things I’m going to see what comes of this, then post an update on how this has affected my life if at all.
