Thought for the Day: Monday
Anita Sharpe on Life

'After finding that about one child in 30 is brilliant and happy, (Harvard psychologist Burton) White did a great deal of research to determine what demographic or psychological characteristics distinguished those children. But the children came from a wide variety of backgrounds -- rich and poor, small families and large, broken and stable homes, poorly and well-educated parents -- and from all parts of the U.S. Finally, through extensive questioning, he determined that the bright and happy children had only one thing in common: All of them spent noticeable amounts of time staring peacefully and wordlessly into space.' -- Michael Ray and Rochelle Myers (from Creativity in Business)

I've been pondering this point for some time, wondering why I haven't always felt fulfilled at my myriad jobs. I have deducted that the ones that don't work for me do not allow me to simply take the time to think, to develop any real inspiration behind my projects.

By letting our minds wander, we don't reach manufactured outcomes; we come up with solutions/ideas that are inspired, that truly fit.
