If you are any kind of creative, you must learn to flânerie.
You must learn it and then practice it.
Nothing funny here.
Flânering must be one component of your creative workday.
Because your easy gate can generate an easy flow of ideas.
“Like idleness itself, there is a paradoxical purpose to flânerie: slow walking may seem like a waste of time to your man of business, but to the creative spirit it is a fertile activity, for it is when walking that the flâneur thinks and generates ideas.”
–Tom Hodgkinson, How To Be Idle
All there is to do is start:
“Try it. Start small: be a flâneur in your lunch hour. Mooch. Dawdle. Float. There is a highly pleasurable feeling of superiority over others and of being in control of one’s own destiny when one simply slows down the pace, and allows oneself to drift. To walk in this way is to refuse to become a victim of the city, but instead helps one to grasp it and enjoy it.”
