It came out of the blue. Right out of left field.
You spent hours, days, or longer thinking about the problem, looking for answers, solutions, and ideas.
You begin to feel like your mind is a hamster wheel, going round and round, never getting anywhere.
You feel tired and frustrated from thinking your way the answer(s) and idea(s) you seek.
You've never been taught any other way.
Later while you're in the shower, driving the car, picking up the groceries, or taking the dog for a walk, or perhaps when you wake up the next day, it happens.
A thought just 'pops' into your head. Yep, just bubbles up.
With ease and grace.
Seemingly out of nowhere.
Infinitely and always more clever than anything you could ever dream or think up.
You feel energized like someone has just breathed new life into you.
It's there. The answer. The solution. The idea. The project. The book.
