I was with a group of friends last night and one of the people there sang a song she wrote. It was quite moving. The song clearly came from her heart and deep commitment to fight against injustice. We all applauded her – for the inspiring song and her courage to write it.
“This is my shower song,” she told us. “I mean, the words and music came to me when I was in the shower.” Then others shared where their best ideas emerged – during a walk, meditating, on the bus, and more.
This reminded me how great ideas often come when I am quiet – and listening with my head and heart.
