The truth exists.
A young boy was watching his grandfather carve an animal out of a piece of wood. The grandfather finally finished and presented a buffalo to his grandson. The young boy looked at his grandfather and said “how did you know there was a buffalo in there”?
With each creative problem, it’s a bit like the buffalo in the wood. You have to believe it’s in there and keep stripping away the layers until it presents itself. That’s called an idea. Sometimes, we stop before the idea fully presents itself. The challenge is to keep carving.
