Stay on this road

Inspiration is kind of like a temperamental friend. If you ignore inspiration, it feels neglected and wanders away. But if you grab onto it too earnestly, you might make it uncomfortable and drive it away.

With practice you can find a middle ground, appropriately engaged with inspiration. You can stay close without stepping on it.

With a little practice, you'll see that this is not a desperate balancing act, not at all like walking a tightrope. It's more like staying on a road while you're driving. You're not crashing through the guardrail on the right, nor are you tumbling into the ditch on the left. It's really not hard, as long as you just pay a little bit of attention and keep your hands on the steering wheel.

You can learn to roll with inspiration for mile after mile. It's a great way to travel!
