"Don't be drab."
Thomas J. Leonard, the late pioneer of the life and business coaching professions, said many challenging and wonderful things in the course of his career. Of all of his quotes, "Don't be drab" is one of my favorites.
Spring is the perfect time to perk up your senses and brighten your life. What aspects of your life may be a bit dull or "lacking in spirit?" Your commute home from work? Your social life? Your writing habits? Your work?
Making just a few small changes in your day-to-day experience can infuse your life--and your writing--with more energy, creativity and vitality.
The next post on The Relaxed Writer will feature tips to help you energize and brighten your life.
In the meantime, I'd love to hear your own thoughts and ideas. How will you "perk up" your life?
