✍️ Stephen King on Waiting For Inspiration

Welcome to Make Daily! This email contains an idea, reflection, and a simple action you can take on your work today.

Idea 💡

“Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work.” ― Stephen King

Reflection 🤔

Inspiration is the life of the party. In its presence you find nothing but joy, possibility, and endless energy to accomplish whatever is in front of you.

The problem is that inspiration is not very reliable. It's difficult to predict when it'll show up and has a reputation of being a bit of a "flake".

So do you only have a party if inspiration decides to drop in? Absolutely not!

You party with or without inspiration. If it decides to come by, then great! We will welcome it with open arms. But we sure as hell don't need it in order to have a good time.

Action ✅

Don't wait for inspiration to show up. Get started.
