When you Have a Breakthrough (118 words)
When you have a breakthrough, something inside you shifts and opens up to ideas and possibilities that before seemed ludicrous, or were even beyond the scope of your imagination. It is electrical.
Then you look around and you begin to see that same idea that you “discovered” repeated over and over by other people in other settings. And if you’re lucky, you are not dismayed at your lack of originality, but pleased by this new kinship with people to whom you would not previously have felt connected.
Your breakthrough idea is one that many others have had, and your pleasure in its realization is multiplied hundredfold as you begin to connect with a new clan of the like-minded.
