Make sure you’re ready for the moment when inspiration strikes.

I think Pablo Picasso may have provided the best advice I’ve ever heard for creative people. It’s translated in many different ways, but in essence it is …

‘When inspiration comes, 
let it find me working.’ 
– Pablo Picasso
 
Inspiration isn’t all that effective if we don’t know what to do with it. We learn what to do with it by practicing. Keep working, keep practicing, get your skills up, so when a genius idea drops into your head, you know what to do with it.
We all get our chance, make sure you’re ready for it.
