Often times good ideas shy away in our periphery until we do some mundane activity that has nothing to do with the idea itself. You’ll find yourself riding your bike, folding laundry, lacing up your running kicks or taking a shower and there it is; a fully formed unique idea out of thin air. An idea which maybe would have never arrived had you focused intently on coming up with the thought.
Good ideas are self centered as they aim to reveal themselves when your mind is most quiet thus commanding your full attention.Good ideas are promiscuous. They like to fornicate with other ideas and multiply.
Sometimes in order to unearth a good idea you need to not think, and allow your mind to reveal itself to you.
