- When you need a fresh approach to a problem or project, sit down with a blank sheet of paper and a pen, set a timer for five minutes, and brainstorm. Give yourself permission to put down any idea: much of what you come up with is likely to be useless, but you may find a brilliant treasure there once you start carefully sifting. You'll also be filled with renewed energy and enthusiasm.
- Nothing to do or undo, nothing to force, nothing to want!
- Meditate on the delicate veins of a leaf. A leaf's veins are similar to the various paths a life can take.
