In order to start this post I’d like to hold your hand and take you with me back in time, when I was a student at university. My major was translation and, as young little apprentices, my classmates and I had to translate quite a few scientific articles during our second and third year at university. It was at some point then, that I was reading some random science article that stated our best ideas come to us when our minds are relaxed. Call it in a pub surrounded by friends, during bath time, before falling asleep or even while practising a sport.
This was a life changing moment for me. Why? Because ever since that moment I always carry around a notebook everywhere, just in case. You can call me crazy notebook lady all you want, but I never ran out of ideas ever since.
