Creativity Tips: Question Assumptions

I was on vacation last week with the woman commonly known as Lynnmybestfriendsincefourthgrade.

Lynn assumes I'm smart. Now, I do have my areas of expertise. But Lynn assumes I'm just all-around smart.

Well, she did. Then, I took her on a "two-hour" drive to Canyon de Chelly from Sedona. Don't pull out the map. I'll confess. It's closer to a six-hour drive. One way.

Yessirree bob. I can't read maps. Never could. Don't know why I tried.

Make our adventure your advantage: Question your assumptions. Especially if they're assumptions about people you love.

And never ask me to navigate you out of anything but a bad paragraph.
