Silence provides an empty page for us to doodle. It gives an artist an opportunity to compose in their mind before they produce the song. An attorney her opportunity to argue before winning the case. A surgeon her vision before performing the surgery. An athlete her play before hitting the game winning shot. And so on.
In a world of constant pings and notifications, it’s difficult to find time to properly create. Entering flow state feels more challenging than ever before. To maximize results, we should seek silence. It’s easier to achieve those silent moments early in the morning or late at night.
Whether you have a passion to write, compose music, start a business, etc; whatever the reasoning, in order to achieve something great, you need to combine your focus with silence.
