The reason most people don’t sit down to work is that they wait for inspiration to arrive.
If there is one thing I have learnt from blogging daily, it is that this order needs to be reversed. When you sit down to do your work, ideas come to you. There isn’t a more fertile ground of ideas than staring at a blank screen for at least 10 minutes, every single day.
The hard part isn’t the finding interesting ideas part. It is the sitting down to work part.
When we sit down each day and do our work, power concentrates around us… we become like a magnetized rod that attracts iron filings. Ideas come. Insights accrete. – Steven Pressfield
