Notes For Creators

creative soul surfing

Sometimes your most inspired action is to stop

Many creatives arise early . . . 

. . . work till midday

. . . take time away for a meal or a walk or a nap or all of the above

. . . then work till evening

Sometimes your most inspired action is to stop.

For example, when Albert Einstein gave up. And in that release from the crushing struggle with his work everything congealed.

Or when the Coconut King paused, looked around at the ruins of a business venture, and something new rose from the ashes.

You know who else stopped? Hemingway — he would stop just short of exhausting an idea — so that he could pick up again the next day in the middle of inspiration — and ride down the track from there.

Sometimes your most inspired action is to stop.

(Unless of course you haven’t started. Then your most inspired action is to begin.)
