Creativity Tips: Improve Upon the Silence

Every once in a while, I stumble across the following bit of wisdom. I've seen it attributed to Buddha and, oddly enough, Yogi Bear -- who was, indeed, smarter than the average bear.* Possibly smart enough to quote Buddha.

Regardless of the source, these are great questions to keep in mind as we go about life:

Is what I'm about to say kind?
Is it true?
Is it necessary?
Does it improve upon the silence?

This week, let's be kind, honest and thoughtful. Let's improve upon the silence.

*My buddy Vanessa is way smarter than the average person. I think she's the first one who mentioned this quote to me.
