Creativity Tips: The Perfect Mistake

I was cleaning out old emails, and found this note from a friend ... sent when I was in the midst of a crisis:

Love you and call me if you need forever.

She meant, " ... if you need anything." But her mistake is perfect, and said exactly what she meant. Mistakes can be marvelous.*

By the by, the crisis is long gone. The love remains.

*I could be making a mistake here. I may have already used this on the blog. It doesn't matter. I don't feel like searching for it -- and I do feel like starting our week with this reminder: A creative team just isn't complete without a friend you can call if you need forever.
