“I have a brain and some hands and every once in a while it feels like they’re working together. Those are the best moments.” – Frank Chimero
To really make use of a good idea you have to use your hands and your brain and the tools available to you.
It’s important to understand that your hands and your brain won’t work well together unless your heart is involved in the process as well. Without heart your creative endeavors are doomed from the start.
One way to test whether your heart is truly into something is time.
Nothing kills a good idea like time. Then again, if you let time stand in the way of your idea, you were never really all that interested in the idea to begin with, right?
