45/365 – Mess is More.
It isn’t true that quality is quantity, but that helps.
Brainstorming is the process of coming up with as many ideas as we can to go down to the one(s) that really work for our purpose. The mess will eventually help to get down to less and better.
I usually keep the mess well organized; it is in my notes, on different devices and tools, in different formats and sizes. It is a mess that shows the variety and doesn’t set one tone, it sometimes takes the shape of notes or a few words. What I care the most in those moments is to keep them all up, pay a tribute to every element shows up in my request for help to my own brain and let it be.
Less is more but the mess is more if well organized. Don’t you ever underestimate the value of a well-organized mess in your creative process, it will eventually create the less you are looking for.
