Seth Godin said “If you go to bed knowing you've got to write something when you wake up in the morning, it will become a productive opening for you.” You would be more aware of what you do, see, read etc. We encounter many things everyday, but many of them pass at the speed of flick and scroll.
Shigesato Itoi said you need “output” for “input”. We tend to believe output should come after input, so take a long time until input seems to be sufficient. Truth is, we have to constantly output to spare space for fresh ideas. It is just like breathing.
