If you don’t have margins to your life, you have no room for growth; and without growth, there can be little or no creativity.
We must take time for incubation, when the inner person can digest the material and give the imagination opportunity to make something out of it. Creative people never consider relaxation a waste of time.
– Preaching and Teaching with Imagination, Warren W. Wiersbe, page 294
Think of your mind as a piece of land. Through diligent, planned work, it can be cultivated into a beautiful and productive garden. Or it can lie fallow, overrun by weeds sprouting from seed carried by passing birds and the wind. Harvesting the bounty of your mind depends on careful effort and preparation by you, the gardener.
All plans, purposes, and achievements are created by the mind.
