Is this truly important?

Flash! Boom! Confetti! Noise! Attention! Drama!
Look at me! Be with me! Be against me!

What is not truly important, needs flash, bangs and drama to hold your attention.
What is truly important is often not loud, not in-your-face, not urgent. But it is… truly important.

When you feel something or someone or some cause asking you for their attention, pause.

Is this truly important?

The strength to lose

We like to win discussions. We like to be right. We like to have things our way.

Nobody likes to lose.

But I cannot help to think that the real inner strength is not with the people who win, but with the people who can afford to lose.

Some people need to win. To validate themselves, to know who they are.
Some people already know who they are. They can choose to lose.

Creative work by sleeping

This works remarkably well for me:

  1. Concentrate a short time on your creative work.
  2. Put it aside and sleep a night on it.
  3. Pick it up the next day.

During the night, I am not consciously thinking about my creative work.

However, the unconscious part of my brain is still working on it.

I’m often amazed at the new creative ideas and solutions that pop up the next day.
