“Ideas are like fish. If you want to catch little fish, you can stay in the shallow water. But if you want to catch the big fish, you’ve got to go deeper. Down deep, the fish are more powerful and more pure. They’re huge and abstract. And they’re very beautiful.”
Sometimes, as creative beings, we get stuck. And sometimes, the best way to solve this issue is to take a step back and think of the big picture.
Next time, happens try doing this through deep meditation. Focus on your breathing while exploring the daydreams that occur. When feeling peaceful and calm, it’s easier to focus and you may be surprised at the ideas you find that you might not have otherwise discovered.
