There is the practical doing of the tasks involved in our projects and work. And there is the energetic inspiration and creativity that flows to power these things.
The practical doing aspect may see us approaching our work in a linear fashion. Step by step progression to completion.
However inspiration and creative flow as you probably realize doesn’t operate in terms of linearity or even of making sense!
Therefore it’s worth releasing grip of things needing to be done linearly and instead to follow the energy, insight, and inspiration as it comes. And to fill in the pieces of your project in relation to that.
Linear thinking: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, etc. until done
Creative flow: 3, 9, 4, 2, 8, 1,15, 26, 307, 5, and overlapping into your next project, and perhaps something else too
If we are quite rigid in our thinking then it’s restrictive and can often cause stress and disappointment about things not happening the way we think they should.
If we loose ourselves to the creative flow however without some linear structure then we run the risk of being dissorganised and getting nothing done. Projects half complete etc.. That can lead to stress and disappointment too.
Therefore it’s good to maintain some “flexible” structure in a way that allows you to change course anytime when needed in relation to how the energy and inspiration is flowing. Making sure also that you take things to conclusion. Never loose sight of what it is you’ve set out to do. And never be afraid to let it all go either if that’s what’s true to do.
It’s all an Art…of course.
