We get lost.
The pace of creation and production pulls at our attention. Even our own ideas and art creation can make our vision blurry. We have a limited bandwidth from which we can navigate this terrain.
But around us – every day, every minute, every second – are important triggers.
Words, images, thoughts, books, conversations, nature, happenings…..
When we’re not alert, when we get so busy we stop paying attention, we miss what could be the trigger to some of our most important ideas.
It takes intentionality.
We have to lift our heads up and take inventory of what is around us. We have to be aware.
Our greatest creative moments may be taking place right in front of us and – because we are not intentionally breaking our stride, paying attention to our worlds, and depositing rather than always withdrawing – we risk missing some great art and opportunity.
