This quote is the reason behind the importance of taking a creative walk.
Because if you are not taking the time to stroll, loiter, or flânerie – you are missing out.
This is because ideas can not always be forced in the way you might think.
The best connections can spring up in the oddest of places.
And sometimes a distraction can be a blessing.
Being distractible can be a strength in creative work. When we understand that an open mind can guide us into new possibilities, we don’t have to try to change ourselves into being more organized or “responsible.” Instead, we can use our creative quirks to our advantage, helping us identify opportunities to do fulfilling work that we would have otherwise missed.
