Listening is the key to creativity

listentoonI’ve been struggling with writer’s block for the past 8 months now. I think when it goes on this long it should be called distracted block and/or lazy block – but that’s just semantics!

Either way, I decided to call a friend of mine who is always doing something interesting. She talked about her new job, a bit about her boyfriend, and an upcoming trip to Seattle.

Nothing extremely revolutionary happened during the conversation but here I am writing (FINALLY!).

My take way is that there is a lot of value in listening to other people. Aside from the fact that it helps you to feel connected to the other souls walking this earth, it allows you to take a break from your own issues so that when you re-visit them, your mind can view them with fresh “eyes.”

So, tip for the day?

If you’re experiencing some type of, “what am I doing with my life feelings” try listening to someone else talk through their situation and see if the break helps you work out your stuff.
