The most surprising things in life

the most rewarding things

are often right under your nose.

Every great idea

contains whispers of your past.

Your experiences, your values

all coalesce in that one light bulb moment.

When you discover a great idea

you're really just seeing something that was unseen

but has been in front of you

the entire time.

That moment isn't just a "Eureka!"

It's also a "Now why didn't I realize this earlier..."

So, be careful of distraction.

Be careful of things that take your eyes off of what's in front of you.

Yet, looking hard doesn't work either.

The harder you look for something, the more elusive it becomes.

Just step back, and notice.

Discovery is just unearthing the hidden

which was actually there all along

right under your nose.
