2 types of inspiration:
  • Passive inspiration: Consuming the success and ideas of others;
  • Active inspiration: Creating things, applying new ideas to our goals, and making mistakes.
Passive inspiration can give you ideas, but active inspiration will move you forward.

Applying inspiration

If you come across a good idea, use it. The application of ideas will always be more powerful than the ideas themselves.

There is some motivation in other people's ideas, but the best inspiration comes from the application of ideas, not the consumption of them.

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

IDEAS

Be Curious

Static systems stifle curiosity. Reintroduce curiosity into your brand by changing your perception of the world to a more dynamic one.

Instead of focusing on controlling the outcome when innovating, focus instead on thinking in dynamic terms and accepting many possible outcomes. This fosters curiosity in your team.

Action isn’t the effect of motivation, but the cause of it

It is often believed that action needs to be preceded by motivation, which is preceded by inspiration. Not at all. It's the opposite: Action provides the Inspiration that gets you Motivated.

Your actions create the emotional reactions to motivate your future actions.Not the other way around.
