Don't wait for inspiration

You don't get to pick what inspires you. Inspiration is rarely interested in the things that you feel you have to do. It's always something else, something that's not on your list.

If you find yourself just killing time, waiting for inspiration to join you so you can get started, you might as well give up. Inspiration never shows up when you're specifically looking for it. It's like the watched pot that never boils.

But if you just go ahead and start working on the things you have to do, you might find inspiration quietly joining you. It just sneaks in while you're not looking.

So don't wait for inspiration. For all you know, inspiration might be waiting for you.
