Inspiration.

monster3Not my best work…

There are times when I run out of good ideas. Periods when nothing I can think of is up to snuff. Everything seems like half-baked drivel that isn’t going anywhere. Certainly not towards that convergence of excellence. When enough good concepts come together naturally and make an incredible leap towards cogitation. The beauty of a carefully considered thought is what keeps me going. Or rather, the hunger for a return of that beauty.

The key is not to give up. Not to pack it in until a new idea comes fluttering into your consciousness. Quality has its own agenda and time table. I run out of ideas every single day, and every time it’s just as scary. I fear that I won’t be able to return to my previous peak. I threat that I have used up the last good idea that will ever come to me. Worst of all that I’ve done so while cracking wise at some pointless seminar or meeting. Does this activity deserve my best?

Good ideas should be, no must be executed. Convincing yourself that “I will get around to it when I have the right assets and can do it justice.” is a bad habit. One I have engaged in on far too many an occasion. Over-analyzing and dissecting every minute little detail before setting about creating will get you nowhere fast. Those ideas and concepts do not stay around in your mind as an insurance plan, a resource you can pull out when times are tough.

It eventually dawns on me that these perfect ideas I have in my head will never be as flawlessly performed in reality. You’re bound to fail the first time you do anything. However, a good idea carried out poorly still trumps a brilliant idea never realized.

What triggers me to create I do not know. But a certain person’s ephemeral smile seems to be doing the trick lately. What is your source of inspiration?
