Amateurs Look for Inspiration

"Amateurs look for inspiration; the rest of us just get up and go to work." Chuck Close

I love feeling inspired. It's so much fun when I come across something that just lights me up and pushes me to work harder to achieve whatever end result I'm working towards. 

But sometimes, inspiration holds us back... or at least the lack of inspiration does. We try so hard to find that next thing to fuel the fire beneath us that we end up waiting and waiting, and yup you guessed it, more waiting.

Sometimes working is the best way to get inspired. Forcing yourself to start something, anything even without a direction or an idea about where it will take you.

Sit down and focus on doing one small thing after another and often times you'll be surprised how inspiration finds you when you least expect it.
