Innovative > Productive
“Everything that’s created comes out of silence. Your thoughts emerge from the nothingness of silence. Your words come out of this void. Your very essence emerged from emptiness. All creativity requires some stillness.”
I’ve been apart of the cult of busy, fashioning myself as a blunt hammer knocking down all tasks in front of me. It was when I stopped that I found innovation. The busy person looks to productivity experts and life hacks to try and shave seconds off, but innovation is where I saved days. Providing space may have cost me a day broken up over the week, but it made up for it in multiples. You can’t really plan innovation, you have to make allowances that let it occur.
