Im having trouble to work on this project.
is it the fear of another disappointed?
or is it the fear of succes?
somehow both prospects are working together to temporarily stop me.
I have found perspective is everything and many times I am unsure of what I was supposed to be doing, why I was doing it and my direction. At this point I simply walk away because I'm just wasting my time and I ponder the nature of the problem. I like to have multiple projects on the go and when one isn't working I jump to the next and I generally always see a connection between the two at some point.
Our frame of mind is also very important and some days nothing works and other days I find my happy place where one hundred percent of my focus is on the problem at hand. When I find my happy place things just work, they just fall into place and it seems as if I don't even have to try. I have found it runs in cycles and when you feel that peak and your mind is racing and all those solutions come flooding in we have to seize the opportunity, hit the bench and see where it takes us... Inspiration.
This is how Tesla worked and it works in reality because it takes a certain amount of man hours to solve any given problem. He thought about the problem at hand 24/7 and when his mind as well as his subconscious mind had thoroughly weighed all the options and all the variables he hit the bench and proved it one way or another. However spending day after day doing things we intuitively know cannot work and things we don't understand is obviously a waste of time. It's basic psychology, critical thinking and if the problem is always on your mind then your subconscious mind tries to connect the dots between everything you experience every single day and that one problem. Anything could trigger it, Oh look a bird, Shazam problem solved because we are not robots nor are we sheep we are individuals.
Which brings us full circle to science and methodology, if your method works for you and shows results then do it and if it does not then stop doing it and change what your doing. "We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them." - Albert Einstein
