Haha! I will add the phrase to my concoction Todd, never know what will come out :)
Thanks for sharing what works for you — the reminder to go hard when you feel that spark is especially useful as it cements a current lesson of just that.
As a side note, I think a lot of the perceived problem with being a ‘mad scientist’ is not only the societal obsession of putting things into boxes, but the value we’ve internalized to place on the doing and “being productive”. A big part of my process to feeling more free and embracing all parts of me has involved letting go of the need to be validated through the results I create. Not surprisingly, also a work in progress :)
