Creativity Tips: Watch the Traffic

I just love the Quick Quote this week: Watch the traffic. The light will never hit you. Moms Mabley got that right.

Today, consider what's getting most of your attention. If necessary, refocus.

I'll give you an example: I've been focusing too much attention on everything my 16-year-old does that annoys me. I need to remember the classic parenting advice and catch her being good.

That sound you hear is me, shifting gears.

P.S. to Chronicle Books. Yes, I can gear creativity tips to parenting. Or love. Or work. If there's an area you're especially interested in, let's talk.

Nope, nope. That sound you hear is me screeching at her to get out of bed before she's late for school one more time. Have you ever noticed how challenging it is to take good advice, even if it's your own good advice?
