Jigsaw Solutions

Force yourself to step outside your “Every Day”

Scanning this article, made me take a closer look.  How many times have you been in the shower, doing something with your family, taking a hike, sketching, researching an unrelated topic and inspiration has struck?  It’s happened to me often.  While doing something out of my normal routine, a solution to a problem I am dealing with or an illustration to teach something simply to someone has popped into my head.

Reading this article reminded me how important stepping away from your every day tasks is to being productive, realizing solutions, and finding inspiration.  Easier said than done for sure, but I am going to make it a personal goal to be more cognoscente of this throughout my day.  So many times I find myself trying to “put my head down and push through” a problem rather than stepping back and looking at it through another perspective.

Start by taking the time to read this article and find your inspiration!
