A daydream is an evasion.

A daydream is an evasion.
Thomas Merton

At school, I was always in trouble for staring into space or not having a clue what the teacher was talking about when I was asked a question…

I made to belive that daydreaming was bad and that I was lazy for not being as focused as the other kids…

Now I’m grown (Kinda) I still daydream, the only difference is I don’t feel guilty about it and here’s why you should do some more of nothing too…

I was sat in the office with Tiarnan and were discussing leads and stuff and he asked me if I had any ideas of how to generate more…

I just looked at him with a blank expression and shugged my shoulders,

Why…

Becuase Ideas don’t come to us when we need them…

That’s why when you’re stuck on a problem forcing yourself to solve it there and then is the last thing you should be doing…

Ideas generate out of nowear at random times (normally when were off-peak) and not focused on something…

Like when we’re in the shower, meditating, in between snooze 1 and 2 alarms (four for me) or staring into space…

Google has a portion of the day for its engineers scheduled especially for daydreaming for this reason they call it 20% time…

A daydream is not an evasion. Its a way to creation.

*Just don’t daydream when you’re at your peak alertness that time is for you to do the work (That you thought of whilst daydreaming)
