Disruption

When you get too close to what you’re doing, you have trouble seeing it all. Focus is essential, and so too is it essential to relax that focus.

The best, most creative solution to the problem does not come from the problem. It comes from the richness of life that exists outside the problem.

With your established routine and habitual thought patterns you can get good work done. With a disruption in that routine you can achieve major breakthroughs.

To make your effort more effective and more creative, back away from it. Stop trying so hard, and allow yourself to be the whole, well-rounded person you know you are.

Make room in your life for mystery, wonder, beauty, color, soft, hot, quiet, dry, wet, bright, dark, and cool. Invite and embrace new experiences, people, places, sensations and ideas.

Always, seek to make a difference, but don’t ever make it a chore. Live fully, diversely, even unexpectedly, and in all you do, you’ll do well.

— Ralph Marston
