The world around us constantly bombards us with stimuli. There’s more going on at any point in time than we can possibly know. It’s easy to become inured to the daily grind; the same commute every day, the same ads and billboards, the same computer screen, the same nine-to-five. It’s easy to let it all pass by in a blur, forgetting that we can often draw inspiration from the least likely sources.
By keeping your mind active, your eyes open and your ears tuned, you may find that the world you pass by every day is chock full of ideas. It could be the young couple walking hand-in-hand down the street, the colours used on the billboard across the way, or maybe even hearing a snippet of a song you haven’t heard in a long time; the triggers that create ideas in our minds, that cause us to have those wonderful “A-ha!” moments that we’re always looking for are almost endless.
The point is, it’s easy to ignore what we think of as being background noise as we make our way through the world, forgetting that sometimes those precious nuggets of inspiration are just hiding under a dusty coating of the mundane.
