"Don't think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It's self-conscious and anything self-conscious is lousy. You cannot try to do things. You simply must do things."
1920 - 2012
Thinking too much often gets in the way of our success. We spend too much time thinking, planning and thinking some more. Analysis often causes paralysis. Get out of your head and find the way to your heart. Look with wonder on the world you inhabit and learn new things. In the worlds of that immortal ad, just do it.
Do you find yourself using the word, "try"? I'll try to write today? I'll try to paint this week. I'll try to practice. Get rid of the word, "try." Most people when they use the word, "try", mean that they are not going to do it. Simply commit and say that you are going to write 500 words today or that you are going to paint 2 pictures this week. Just do it.
Here is a link to a few Ray Bradbury stories. Don't think. Read and enjoy.
