Be receptive

You don’t have to be a genius to make genius.  – Ryan Holiday
 
Every day you experience moments of brilliance.  Moments you miss if you’re not paying attention.  Moments easily obscured when you focus on the ordinary, when you let yourself become distracted.
 
Don’t wait for inspiration. Don’t sit and dream about the time when genius might show up.  It’s already there, already in and around you.  Learn to be receptive.
 
Seize those fleeting moments and run with them.  Probe them, ask questions of yourself and others.  Test your ideas, push the envelope, and let those small moments build big momentum.
