The fifth commandment for my self is: Don’t wait for inspiration.

Masters never wait. Master composers, painters, photographers, silversmiths, cooks, designers…never “wait” for inspiration to hit. They didn’t become “masters” by waiting for that perfect moment/idea/ingredient/lover/weight loss/financial wind-fall/blog subscriber count – they worked all the time. Sketching, doodling, taking pictures of everything, plinking on the ivories/guitar strings/keyboards…

Somewhere in all of that creative exploration….something happened. The big “a-ha” moment.

A true master creates inspiration. They don’t wait for it.
