Your best ideas come when you turn your attention away from the trivial. Or probably toward the trivial – what we think is trivial, you know, the boring stuff. Trees, shoes, traffic, lines at the grocery store, that sort of thing.

Your best ideas come to you when you’re not willing them into being. It’s what the Taoists call ‘inaction.’ Trying, but not trying hard. Modern people have a term for this: tryhards. In a sentence, You’re being such a tryhard, Dude why are you trying so hard?

You can only try or not. Anything more becomes wasteful. The sun burns off only as much energy as it needs to, otherwise it would explode and that wouldn’t be good.
