So some of you may know this, but I’m a musician. I’ve been playing guitar for over 20 years now, and yes, I’m still terrible at it.

The funny thing though is even if I haven’t picked up a guitar in a long time, when I do I barely have to think. My hands already know where to go, how to move and all I have to do is think of the sound I want them to make.

As much as I love using my mind to think, write and generally create things, I also love the fact that I can “shut off” my “mind” and let my hands create something else entirely.
