Ahhh the ever elusive feeling of the zone or flow or finding that exact moment that makes me feel like I “got it”. The truth is i don’t think anyone knows. Some may say its luck, others might say its a deliberate path calculated to an end goal.
To me the “got it” it feeling comes during the journey when you feel doubt but force yourself to push through. Creating habit to do the work even when you are not up to it emotionally is the most important part of the process to finishing your goal or figuring out whether to move on from that goal.
The struggle is in the process. Sometimes I have to just push beyond the struggle until an idea presents itself. During the process you can mark off those little parts of the struggle as successful or not. Someday soon you will reach that destination that you started from nowhere.
