The lion’s share of your mental processing and idea generation happens in the deep recesses of your mind outside of your conscious awareness.
Your tirelessly working subconscious spits out its discoveries in the form of insights, epiphanies, and creative thoughts at times that you cannot anticipate.
However, if you turn your attention away even just momentarily, then just like a bird that briefly lands on your window sill, it will be gone, never to be seen again.
This is why it’s essential to make it a practice to record these “creative “mind-pops” as soon as they appear, then transfer them into a second brain.
This secondary brain is a central location such as a journal from which you will over time be able to gain even more insights and ideas that will help solve your most pressing challenges.
