Plan Less and Keep an Open Mind


Lately, I’ve been having writer’s block. When I first started writing this blog I intended to update it once a day. Once a day quickly became once every two days, which quickly became a few times a week (if I’m lucky).

And the more I think about it, the more obvious it is to me why we all sometimes have “writers block”, or lack of creativity, ingenuity, or good ideas.

The more we try to plan or over think things, the more complicated they become.

My best ideas have come at the weirdest times, great opportunities came unexpectedly, and some of my most insightful and eye opening conversations happened with strangers. Completely unexpected and out of the blue.

This idea, or notion of “out of the blue”, not only applies to good ideas, but to life and opportunity.

If we plan less, work hard, and keep and open mind, the complicated becomes simple, and those good ideas come out of no where.
