Are you waiting to get inspired?

Wrote yesterday about saying yes to the artist inside. Struck me that artists have one more super important characteristic that I think we all should learn from: Artists don’t passively wait to be inspired. They actively seek out inspiration. And they know that sometimes you need to do the work, inspired or not (which in fact is a really good way to get inspired: start doing the work).

 

I find it helpful to keep a list of inspiring activities and when feeling completely out of inspiration I look at the list, chose one activity and get going. What about you?
