Try Elizabeth Gilbert's "BIG MAGIC: CREATIVE LIVING BEYOND FEAR."

Basic theme seems to be, ideas are "out there" in the ether, looking for a home, and one may decide that you're "it", if you're receptive and welcoming, and willing to put in the work. If you don't do the work, it goes away and finds somebody else. If you do the work, it gives you energy to persist.

Ebb and flow of creative energy is one of the major forces involved in giving rise to the pile of 80% complete projects around here.

There is too much energy on the TOP site. My life is consumed by the articles that you post. There are too many fascinating links that I have not yet had the time to follow. I have three recommended books only partially read and two more still in the wrappers. Please, I need a break. The dandelions on my lawn are mocking me. Perhaps a food and diet phase would give me time to catch up on my life.

As for your Photography Is Too Expensive phase and your Leica phase, try sticking a red dot on a Lumix DMC-LX100. It has a simple and understandable layout, with a Leica lens and a Panasonic price. In the words of my two favourite philosophers, Jagger & Richards, “You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometime, well, you just might find, you get what you need.”

You will find the energy if the idea drive you nuts and won't let go.

I remember the saying as...a goal is a dream with a deadline but don't know the source.

I think Leonard Bernstein said something like: the key to great work is a good plan and not quite enough time to carry it off.

How's this?

“A goal without a plan is just a wish.” - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
