Finding inspiration is like lighting a fire

Finding inspiration is like lighting a fire except you don’t have anything to ignite it.

Doing lots of reading, talking to lots of people and thinking about the idea as much as you can is like preparing the kindling.

If you put in enough effort to push the idea as far forward as you can, you’ll often find yourself at a point where you can’t go any further or, even worse, you become complacent.

This is when you need a spark.

A spark can come from anywhere, and you won’t always be able to plan on its source.

However, you do need to make sure that you’re always in the mindset to blow on the flames once it comes.
