Why Read It? Because everyone finds inspiration in different ways, but being able to recognize what fuels you and how to put it into action is powerful.

  • Inspirational people are those who have good ideas and, most importantly, act on them
  • Creating opportunity out of inspiration is a skill, but one that can be easily practiced
  • Take a look at your latest work and ask yourself what the inspiration was behind it, and further, determine if that inspiration was consistent
