Inspiration to Curb the Internet Addiction

I’ve been thinking a lot about inspiration — the fuel of our human endeavors. I love it. But I’ve also realized that inspiration has an expiration date. It turns sour after a while. I’ve learned that I need to utilize my inspiration while I have it, and find good sources of “inspiration food.”
