What unlocks you?

A good read, a daily meditation, journaling, a simple contemplation, a trip overseas—it's the moments of rest and reflection that shape you. Head down in the sand or at the desk at work can be expansive but exhaustive. We need more activities that generate thinking without thinking, unmoored from the depths of the laborious ritual. 

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. The challenge in making life feel new again is figuring how we can copy and combine the observations and artifacts we collect into something that feels original. 

We should lean more on our guidance—everyone knows what they need to do, as long as they are willing to embrace the pain. Change is on the palette, a necessity no matter how subtle it presents itself. Not surprisingly, it evinces itself only when you step away. Tapping into the world around you unlocks the potential of one's mind.
