A Day in the Life page 23 Sketch Book Project color pencils
Another sketchbook page to the rescue for this post. Picking up on the text of that page - how do you solve problems? When do you get your best ideas?
I read today about 'Bed, Bath and Bus Theory' -" ....it’s the notion that the best ideas come when you least expect it, such as in the bath/shower, lying in bed or waiting for a bus." The article further stated that "we need two characteristics in particular to make incubation successful: patience and belief. Both of these are necessary for you to walk away from a problem that means a lot to you, that you really want to solve or that has a deadline." The author of that article Lucretia Torva concludes "One last thing to do. Assign this project to your subconscious. Literally tell your mind to take care of, then let it go. "
I am glad to know that my coping mechanism of moving away is in a way looked upon as 'incubation of an idea' :)
