Realize that our minds are incredibly limited.
We can only capture a fraction of inputs, from a fraction of a situation, from a fraction of time.
Let that sink in.
Due to our limited capacities, we take shortcuts.
We begin to tell things apart.
Create barriers between fields and systems.
Reality does not work like that.
Reality works on the richness of connections and interactions.
The close to reality we are, the more we notice how everything is interconnected.
Although we may not be able to truly align ourselves completely to reality, we can use it as our north star.
We should actively seek to connect our fields of expertise with other fields.
Read widely and the connections will rise to the surface.
This is the essence of creativity, and it’s available to all of us.
