is one of those things that gets further away, the more we reach for it.
Whether you’re trying to find the right way to word an email, or trying to
figure out the logistics of a family party what often takes the most time is
that excruciating period where you just have no clue how to proceed. The more
we try, the less inspired we feel. But there are deadlines to meet, calls to be
made, life to be continued with. None of us has the luxury these days of just
downing tools and heading off to a breezy hilltop to ponder what needs to be done;
there a meetings to attend, calls to be made, and an ever-growing pile of
washing up to be attended to.
thing you can do in this situation is stop trying. Take a deep breath and let
your mind be carried away to somewhere else for a few blissful seconds.
Everyone can afford just a few seconds to stop and refocus; often that’s all it
takes to allow that flash of inspiration to hit.
