Inspiration October 28, 2006

Posted by Unreasonable in Personal Development, Truth.

Inspiration is like picking up one of those blinky things in a video game that makes you invincible for awhile. You can do anything, go anywhere, and you don’t have to worry about it.

Those blinky things exist in real life too. It may be a picture, or some words, or a sound, or a idea, or a mistake, or a moment. Whatever it is, pick it up and run with it. Run with it like you stole it.

You can’t bottle up inspiration. You can’t put it in a ziplock, toss it in the freezer, and fish it out later. It’s instantly perishable if you don’t eat it while it’s fresh…

It’s true. I do my best to accommodate inspiration when it shows up. Fortunately, I get inspired easily. Unfortunately, it’s rarely about something that my employer would like me to be inspired about. I’m still trying to figure out what to do about that.
