Inspiration is like success. You can't achieve it by pursuing it out of self-interest. If you want inspiration, you need to stop looking for it. You need to pause, think of something else, and let inspiration come to you. Inspiration tends to come to us when we expect it the least. Answers to our problems tend to come to us when we no longer bother with the issue. Walking, showering, getting distracted are some of the best ways to get inspiration. The best ways to get inspiration are indirect, not direct. You can take actions that cause inspiration to come to you, but you can't force inspiration to come to you.
