Incubating Ideas

Here you can see little Issey Miyake looking as if he is thinking "What does she expect me to do with all this?!" (He is such a good boy! Little Santino would have had the table cleared of all small rollable items.)

Issey has yet to see what actually
happens on this table. I've been sick.

I like to call this non-productive period "incubating time". I don't know that the blue-green images sparkling in my feverish brain will amount to anything, but I do believe some down-time is a good thing.

A cat who is both ornamental and useful, and a fine figure of a feline indeed.

I'm sorry to read that you're unwell, and hope you feel better soon.

great way to categorize your down time. I often feel guilty & should change to this perspective!

Thanks for stopping by & commenting on LuRu's great tiles

This is a technique I teach my coaching clients. When we are upset we have the tendency to black and white thinking, but, it's not necessary...or even go from "too sick to move" to "happily productive". All we need is to reach toward a slightly better feeling step. Once on that slightly better feeling step, we can reach again.....
I'm convinced that we don't produce our best work when we are beating ourselves with "shoulds".
