The art of selective ignorance

In a previous post, I shared how I often begin my mornings by daydreaming. I take the time to let my mind drift and my imagination run wild—and that’s often when my best ideas arrive.

In other words, if you don’t have the ball, move to a different place on the field where you’ll be open to receive the ball.

The same principle applies to you.
