[Ether by Silent Partner, a sad, ambient song
with elements of rock, plays in the background]. Sage from off-camera: Verification. Evaluation. Rethinking the idea, the solution. Does it work? The stage of assessment, of judgement. Can you move forward? Is the idea a good one? Next comes the approach,
the crafting of the message, the selection of the audience. How will you communicate the idea? Without verification, the other stages are
pointless. Without crafting and communication, your idea
will be lost. It will fade, you will forget,
and that’s a little sad. [Music grows more intense, rhythmic]. Verification is writing the book,
creating the blog, starting the channel,
recording the melody, designing the studio,
crafting the plan. Verification is the main stage of doing. It is the moving from the head to the hands. [Rock elements of music begin to build] I can’t tell you how many times I’ve moved
through preparation, incubation, and illumination without even entering verification. I can’t tell you how many ideas I’ve lost
because I don’t even remember them. [Quicker tempo, heavier rock, musical interlude] [Music fades] Verification is creation,
the final Stage of Creativity. Verification. Evaluation. Rethinking the idea, the solution. Does it work? One way to support this creator is through Patreon.
