inspiration, perspiration, and desperation

December 7th, 2008 No comments

The quote “Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration” by Thomas Edison just came up. A moment of brainstorming an idea was really exciting and enjoyable, however, the later 99% of effort to make it real was utterly exhausted, stuck, painful and not fun at all. During the agony, I asked my that I did have 1% of creative inspiration and falling down to a thought that I only executed the 99% of tedious effort and the last 1% of blank was filled by desperation. – Oct 5, 2005

I wrote the above paragraph on my diary when I was working on a project called Find the Spot. Now, I think I somehow enjoy the 99% of perspiration and the last part is filled with inspiration rather than desperation.
