Eras, businesses and movements have risen from moments of spontaneity. Ideas flick matches, and spontaneous action ignite fires. Spontaneous action is good for you. It’s that pulley that thrusts you into new areas, problems and likes. This is where you gain perspective in new experiences, and stretch capacity to create in your favour.
This action comes with steep costs – it demands that we relinquish expectations, and makes no promises with results. That’s why we avoid random, spontaneous measures as much as we can, especially if we’ve experienced negative results with previous gambles.
The way to harness an unbridled creature is to work on one’s personal skills as a rider. What kind of life-surfer are you, and what would you mentally need to prepare yourself for the high wave of spontaneity? You want to make the best of most situations, so you’ll want to capitalize on an unplanned opportunity as much as possible.
