MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Read a lot and follow your curiosity. You should never stop investing in yourself.

To have good ideas, we need to consume good ideas too. Your formal education isn’t the end. If anything, it’s the beginning.

Getting stuck is normal. It’s our reaction to it that really matters.

Step aside, find other projects and actively ignore the thing that got you stuck. By doing this, your subconscious creates space for ideas to grow.

It transforms us into “perfectionists”. And that is a form of safety.

We all have ideas and we should practice not rejecting them before giving them a chance.

It's about pushing boundaries, failing miserably, and having the strength to stand back up again.

Deepstash helps you become inspired, wiser and productive, through bite-sized ideas from the best articles, books and videos out there.

Dictators from history had an ideal world in mind that would last. But their dreams were never realized, and instead left catastrophic destruction behind.

We are unable to plan a perfect life without also fully understanding the complexity of life. Things we think we want now might be different from what we want in the near future.
