Waiting for flashes of inspiration

is a bad strategy.

Flashes of inspiration give you the ideas. They don’t give you the tools for translating those ideas into words or pictures.

If you rely only on flashes of inspiration, you miss out on the slow but steady growth that comes when you stick to a regular routine of making things.

And if you stick to a regular routine of making things, you’ll quickly see that you don’t need to wait for lightening to strike. Because “I’m waiting for lightening to strike” is just another excuse.

Everybody thinks. Therefor, everybody has ideas. Flashes of inspiration can hit just about anybody. But ideas alone are not enough. We need tools to translate our ideas into words and pictures, and we need to learn how those tools work.

Most people who have ideas lack the discipline to learn how to use the tools designed for translating those ideas into words or pictures.

Learn how the tools work, and you’ll be ahead of just about everybody.
