Inspiration Hits When It Needs To

August has been an interesting month.  So many new things on the go that I fear I may lose track.  And not only that but I need to remain in the mode of creating so that I can continue to work and help my clients find their own successes.

It is not as easy as sharpening your pencil and getting started in the next thing, all the time.  Sometimes is takes a break to find that inspiration is coming back to you.  It could take a change of scenery....right now I am in Toronto and love the energy, the visuals, the beat and the people. This mental break is more than feeing me up to see things differently, it is also allowing my mind to  unfocus so that I can refocus.

For the last few weeks I have been struggling to create a name for an organization I would like to start that will focus on the skills leaders of today & tomorrow will need to build so that they can truly become leaders worth following.  Finally, engrossed in the sounds of the city. My husband hits upon a brilliant idea and the name has now been narrowed down to 2 separate but similar ideas.  Whew! (I will post this shortly, I promise).  All this because of a quick change of frame of reference.

What do you do when you need the jolt of inspiration?  How do you get refreshed to find focus?  Ah-ha moments are sometimes difficult to come by!

Inspiration seems best first thing in the morning. As a matter of fact, last week I jumped out of bed at 1:30 and wrote six pages. Yes it even made sense in the morning and inspired the business partners.

If you have an inspiration moment, stop what you are doing and write it all down - it really works!
