    Open yourself up to creative inspiration.

    Think of a mighty peach tree standing tall in your garden. The tree creates a harvest of peaches every summer. It doesn’t try to grow the peaches. It doesn’t agonize over whether it is, in fact, worthy enough to be a peach-maker. It just allows the force of creation to move through it. It does what it was born to do, easily and efficiently, moving with the rhythms of the universe.

    We are all like that peach tree. We’re all naturally creative. We all have the urge to make things, whether that’s a sculpture, a song, a peach pie, or an innovative project at our company. And, like that tree, we’d do well to put our doubts aside and let the creative forces of the universe do their work.

     All we need to do is open ourselves up.

     OK, but this might be easier said than done. How can you move toward making this a reality?

    The first step is easy. Start by noticing what’s going on in the world around you. The next time you get the train home or take a walk around your neighborhood, put down your phone. Pry those headphones from your ears.

    Feel the sharp kiss of the wind on your cheek. Listen to the juicy morsels of gossip your fellow passengers are whispering about. Check out the wild outfit your neighbor wears while he’s mowing the lawn. Appreciate the barren beauty of even the most wintery forest.

    There’s so much to notice in the world if you only allow yourself to look.

    The work of an artist is to cultivate an openness to the world around you. To sharpen your sense of awareness so that you become receptive to the surprises and clues and nudges the universe is trying to give you – all the time. We do ourselves a disservice when we imagine that we create art purely by ourselves. In reality, you’re always accompanied.

    So, the next time you’re struggling with a creative problem, ask the universe for help and look for the clues. Open a book to a random page and see if you get inspired by a quote. Or pick a movie at random and see what moves you while you’re watching. Or spend 15 minutes in a shop you’d never normally enter. Being receptive to clues is more poetry than science. It’s about recognizing that every facet of your life can contain wonder and that inspiration can lie in unlikely places.

    The best way to cultivate the practice of awareness is by looking for regular moments in your day when you can take the time to pause. Try taking a few extra minutes in bed each morning, drawing deep breaths, and checking in with the sensations of your body. Or make it a daily ritual to walk the few blocks to your office instead of taking a cab. Or end every evening by listening to music with your eyes closed. By hooking the habit of awareness onto your existing routine, you can start to integrate it into your life. Then, after enough practice, you’ll notice that it’s become second nature.

    Ich bin begeistert. Ich liebe Bücher aber durch zwei kleine Kinder komme ich einfach nicht zum Lesen. Und ja, viele Bücher haben viel bla bla und die Quintessenz ist eigentlich ein Bruchteil.

    Genau dafür ist Blinkist total genial! Es wird auf das Wesentliche reduziert, die Blinks sind gut verständlich, gut zusammengefasst und auch hörbar! Das ist super. 80 Euro für ein ganzes Jahr klingt viel, aber dafür unbegrenzt Zugriff auf 3000 Bücher. Und dieses Wissen und die Zeitersparnis ist unbezahlbar.

    Extrem empfehlenswert. Statt sinnlos im Facebook zu scrollen höre ich jetzt täglich zwischen 3-4 "Bücher". Bei manchen wird schnelle klar, dass der Kauf unnötig ist, da schon das wichtigste zusammen gefasst wurde..bei anderen macht es Lust doch das Buch selbständig zu lesen. Wirklich toll

    Einer der besten, bequemsten und sinnvollsten Apps die auf ein Handy gehören. Jeden morgen 15-20 Minuten für die eigene Weiterbildung/Entwicklung oder Wissen.

    Viele tolle Bücher, auf deren Kernaussagen reduziert- präzise und ansprechend zusammengefasst. Endlich habe ich das Gefühl, Zeit für Bücher zu finden, für die ich sonst keine Zeit habe.
