the pursuit of ideas

 

The Art of Having No Idea,” is a recent fun read. The author describes creativity as “to pick up on something that’s already ready to happen — and help it to find a way.” There are entrepreneurs who can just pick up any idea and turn it into a great business. I envy them.

Seriously, remember that 13-year kid that found that plant-a-million-trees startup, everyone thought it was such a selfless, amazing idea?

I Google, “Felix Finkbeiner”. Turns out, he did plant a million trees and is now planning for a trillion trees. Good for him, he found his jam.

We struggle a lot with the pursuit of ideas, what we want to do with our life. It’s part of the human experience. The ideas we get caught up in and the people that go to war with you really make up the best of it, in my humble opinion. The journey over destination, right?

But there is something special when you’re reading the first chapter of the first book of The Lord of the Rings, that background and flaws of the characters before the catalyst comes to your door.

We just gotta keep living, and struggle to grow. You gotta plant the first 100 to get to one million trees. And no matter what, don’t give up on your dream, because good things take time.

  1. I feel like I’m just starting to get redundant when I say that your photos are beautiful, because they always are!

    Loved the million trees metaphor as well, and good on that kid! I feel like I really needed to read this post, at the moment I’m feeling a little deflated and like my dreams are really far away so reading this was a brilliant pick me up 🙂

  2. All the good things take time and I completely agree with you! I need to read that article ASAP because you just got me motivated enough and I wanna get the momentum going 😀 this top is also beyond perfection! Love the fun sleeves and the wrap detail!!! Sending lots and lots of love your way xoxo

  3. I totally agree…we often shoot ourselves down before we even start and that is not the way to begin anything. We have to take the first step before anything else. I love these photos. Your pictures always inspire me. The wrap top ripped jeans is one of my favorites. Have a great holiday weekend! xoxo, Christine
