Where to find inspiration

Where do you find inspiration? This is one of the most-asked questions about inspiration, and if you've been following this blog, you probably realize by now that it's not even the right question to ask.

First, you don't find inspiration. Inspiration finds you.

Second, it's not about what place you're in, or what you're looking at. Inspiration is not an object that you discover. Inspiration is a way of seeing — a way of seeing what's not there but should be there. Inspiration is a state of mind, a willingness to discover something new that doesn't exist yet, but could exist in the future through your own creative actions.

If you have that state of mind, it doesn't matter where you are. You can find inspiration anywhere.
