What inspires YOU?

Today I am inspired by IDEAS. I am REALLY REALLY excited about an idea I have... this one is NOT going to get lost in a sketchbook somewhere on the shelf :) This one is happening! I had a dream almost a year ago about this and I was SO incredibly inspired! Then I began to doubt myself and thought "one day" I'll do it. It has been rolling around in the back of my mind for so long, in the "to do one day" pile. It got stuck there because I doubted if I could actually pull it off, I think I used the excuse that this project would be really time consuming... well guess what! There will NEVER be enough time! We just MAKE time for what is REALLY important :) And if something INSPIRES you so much you cant sleep because you cant stop thinking about it... then you NEED to just do it!

Last weekend I had a conversation with a friend, and in a non related way it triggered this idea again and in that moment I knew exactly how the whole project was going to happen. And it's big. I cant talk about this project yet, but you will hear about it VERY soon!

I always thought it was my major downfall having too many ideas that I would never be able to do them all... I once heard a cool quote "If you didn't do everything you planned to do in your life time, you didn't plan enough!" Love it!

To anybody who would like to add a comment, (and please do!) tell us what inspires you? Do you have a cool project you have been putting off? Is today the day you will loose some sleep and start working on that inspiring idea and make it happen? What motivates you? What inspires you?



    I read the book The Four Hour Work Week by Tim Ferriss, and I've been working on creating my own business. This guy has had massive success with it, and this video has inspired me.

  2. Wow that video is so awesome!! I am going to go get that book! Thanks for sharing :)

  3. Music. Music is about the most inspiring thing known to me, and there's so much variety, it inspires so much creativity.

    Slower pieces like or

    Rock'n'roll-ish like or or

    I could keep going, but you get the point.

    Music. It's where it's at.

  4. I can relate - I have so many ideas and I have one of those "to do one day" piles too! Now you know why my etsy shop is called "anotherbrightidea." Can't wait to hear what your bright idea is!!

  5. 2G Radio, music is sooo amazing thank you for posting that! I LOVE how music can make you FEEL strong emotion, it can connect on such a deep level. I always need inspiring music when I'm painting, a great source for inspiration! I love music :)
