Picasso on Inspiration

February 6, 2019 pwm1

Inspiration exists, but it has to find us working.

—Pablo Picasso (1908; Public Domain)

And that work needs to involve focused action, not “busy” work. Anyone can say, “I was busy from the minute I woke up to the minute I went to bed,” but how much of that was focused on moving you closer to your goals, your objectives, your dreams? Go into each day like a raging bull; spend the vast majority of your time moving forward on the path you charted toward your destination, and the inspiration will almost magically appear!
