We sleep on it, take cold showers, and jog it out. We give the various ingredients time to simmer.

We are always working, whether it's by gathering string or by waiting for the neurons and the synapses to wire and fire together.

The conscious mind applies the deliberate practice while the subconscious does the rest. Says writer and illustrator Maira Kalman, “wonderful things happen when your brain is empty.” That is the magic of thinking without thinking.

The kernel of an idea blooms within all the cerebral apps within. But that's just the start.

Once one idea stops working, we go through the learning process all over again.

“It is amateurs who have one big bright beautiful idea that they can never abandon. Professionals know that they have to produce theory after theory before they are likely to hit the jackpot.”

Francis Crick
