As you accumulate more skills and internalize the rules that govern your field, your mind will want to become more active, seeking to use this knowledge in ways that are more suited to your passions and desires

The key to awakening this creative energy is to maintain a fluid, open mind, one that is continually looking for connections between ideas and novel perspectives on problems.

After a lengthy apprenticeship, the counter tendency is to become conservative with what you know, to follow the paths others have forged. 

Why do what has already been done? 

(Unless you have a better solution.)

You have to force yourself from this position, continually challenging your own assumptions and not being afraid of failure or the criticisms that will come from experimenting with what you have learned.

You must be aware of the primary "creative dynamic" namely, the energy and excitement you put into your work will be translated into the final results.

I.e, acquiring your goals! 

If you are primarily motivated by money or the need for attention, people will read this in the work you are doing and they will be suitably unimpressed. 

When you feel a deep connection to what you are investigating or expressing, this will resonate with others and bring you much more money and attention in the long run.

The endgame here is to mix your years of discipline and practice with a bold and original thinking. 

One without the other will lead you nowhere.

Science and Art together!

May You enjoy a Beautiful day
