Celebrate the Crazy

Posted By: Randy GageMarch 28, 2017

So it’s 2 am in California and I should be sleeping.  But my mind is too riotous at the moment for that.  A situation that used to drive me berserk.  Now I celebrate it.  And so should you. Because I have come to recognize it is part of the “mad genius” process…

Sometimes you will become so excited about your work, the projects that you are doing, no amount of meditation is going to calm you down.  You have to get up, brew some tea, and create.

It might be designing a video storyboard, knocking out a chapter of a book, or scribbling the outline of a business plan.

Yes the world will think you’re crazy.  Normal people don’t do this.  But normal people never unleash the genius inside them.

So stop fighting the urge.  Forget about fitting in.  Celebrate the crazy, because that’s where your genius hides.

  1. I am very often in this same situation and think I "can't" get up, because it's the middle of the night. You are so right .. I need to just get up.... normal people definitely don't do that, but who wants to be normal anyway? 🙂

  2. 🙂 Hey Randy. I understand your words very well, I practically live in that sphere most of the time. It's priviledge to (be able) to live like this - straight from the gut - yet filtering the flood of impressions by the set of values I choose to live by before I act. It is a priviledge - however, I find it doesnt come granted - courage to follow the own decision and individial feeling is a vital element in this. So yes, (wanting to) "be normal" won't fit here. Its the quest of listening to your self - or some other government.

  3. I have that same feeling many times. I have a few times gotten out of bed to scribble down a thought or idea in my head and went back to bed. And yes normal is not my aspiration either. Thank you for this post.

  4. It sounds fantastic! Get up and celebrate and unleash the genius in you. But i have never had this zen like moment when I would view my life goals with such clarity.
