|Movie Theater (Photo credit: roeyahram)|
When is the best time your ideas surface to your brain; after you struggle to come up with a project for that deadline? My ideas often surface between asleep and awake. Awake represents conscienceness whereas asleep represents unconscienceness. There lies that fine line between the two. Remember: conscienceness objects whereas unconscienceness does not.
Here is an illustration: when you are awake, consciensce tells you, "Oh that was such a stupid idea!" The fine line at night tells you,"Go for it no matter what." You still go ahead and do it.
Take my hats for example. As I lay asleep at night, the ideas I struggle with often play to me like a movie where everything slowly and smoothly fall into place.
I often explain this to noncreative people. Their reactions are ofter blank stares wondering what planet I'm from. They can learn a thing or two. Take it from me besides looking elsewhere for that typical inspiration, the next place will come from you inner "movie theater" when you dream at night.
