If a cluttered desk signs a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign?
~ Albert Einstein.
They say that geniuses do their best work amidst chaos and commotion. They say there is nothing orderly about prodigy minds and serious thinkers.
I tend to believe it. I mean, have you seen the desks, the white boards, or the working quarters of the most brilliant minds in history? It’s anything but organized! And it is not just the brains of a genius that produce brilliance in mayhem and mess. Our minds too seem to be far from orderly. Why is it that the most irrelevant thoughts and most unusual ideas come to us in the least likely circumstances and why do we go blank when we actively ask our brain to think and participate?

Part 1: How to Recognize an Idea Worth Pursuing
This article is part of a 3-series. Go here for Part 2 and Part 3.
Ideas are a dime a dozen. Everyone has them. Things we should do; things we should stop doing. Or things we could be doing, creating, producing, changing, enhancing, trying, living, or just dreaming. It does not take a special person to think of ideas. Even little kiddies have ideas — mostly bad ones with consequence but they do have ideas.
A healthy, functioning brain and body has thoughts, desires, opinions, aspirations, and oh yes, emotions. The thought of going through a day without a single idea is unimaginable to me. I have a hard time keeping track of mine, and you know what? [Read more…] about Part 1: How to Recognize an Idea Worth Pursuing
