According to Jonathan Harris, there are two phases:
1. The first one is one when you are just picking up the signals from the ether. Ideas aggregate over time and pop out one day when you are in shower.
2. This is the phase when you actually decide “Ok ! I am gonna do it! I am going to actually pursue this cool thing !”.
And once you have decided, it’s a different mindset altogether from that point of time for you have to become more rationale, logical and disciplined. It is less about receiving and more about synthesizing, distilling and ultimately producing. And a lot of creative people struggle with this because the former one is more pleasing way to live life but second phase is when you actually get things done.
