Friday, September 13, 2019 - 8:30am
Whether you’re a mathematician tinkering with complex equations or a musician pairing discordant notes together, searching for inspiration can often send you in circles. The longer you sit and wait for an epiphany to strike, the harder it gets to make progress.
What if you could get unstuck by turning to your muse?
Your muse comes from the deepest parts of your imagination and guides you to new ideas. It invites you to bring your dreams to life using the raw materials found in your daily life. Beloved artist Frida Kahlo once famously said, “I am my own muse. I am the subject I know best. The subject I want to know better.”
The next time you want to draw out your muse, stimulate your imagination in a different context. Leave your desk, take a walk outside, read something different, observe the ordinary, or try your hand at a new recipe.
Chances are your muse will come out to play.
