Being Open to New Ideas

It is hard to come up with new ideas if we don't take time to think about them. Two great quotes on this today.

“Wonderful things happen when your brain is empty.”
- Maira Kalman

 “As much as I love the social web, it exhausts me. I feel like I’m constantly leaving when I’ve only just arrived. Twitter (my social media of choice) is a constant stream of surprise not unlike walking down the streets of New York City.”
