don't prepare

• Give up planning. Drop the habit of thinking ahead.
• Attend carefully to what is happening right now.
• Allow yourself to be surprised.
• Stockpiling ideas for future use is unnecessary.
• Trust your imagination. There is always something in the box.
• Welcome whatever floats into your mind.
• Fear is a matter of misplaced attention. Focus on redirecting it.
