day 04: one story, different insights


Hi ,

Starting to get the hang of it? Good! Because today, we are going to take it up a notch.

The Seed for today is Romeo and Juliet.


Now here’s the challenge. We all know the play, and most of us know the amazing Dire Straits song. But today, try not to think about them in advance. Go out, look around you, and don’t try to imagine what you might find. Just keep the Seed in your mind while mindfully looking around you.

Sooner or later you will see something and say to yourself: now that is clearly a Romeo and Juliet inspired insight. After capturing it, take a moment to reflect on what you found. Was it inspired by the song, the play, or just an abstract concept such as love or tragedy? And while you’re at it, did you take an optimistic photo or is it closer to the tragic end of the spectrum?

Boost Your Play
Always try to find different aspects of the Seed you are playing with. The first aspect you focus on can be random. But after you capture a couple of Insights, try to focus deliberately on another specific aspect.

And now comes the even more challenging part of this exercise: continue to explore the world around you, and try to find something inspired by a different aspect of Romeo and Juliet. For example, If your first Insight was romantic, try finding something tragic.
