December 17: Daylight

“Deal with problems in the daylight.” 

— Austin Kleon

This is probably the best practical advice ever given.

Everything looks so much brighter during the day. At night, the walls seem closer, everything is dark and that can mess with your mind. (It messes with my mind, anyway.) Screw that, you guys — we’ve got a new rule: No thinking about our problems after the sun goes down. There’s plenty of time for that tomorrow when we’re all serene, like Emerson taught us HERE.

P.S. Kleon has a fun blog HERE.

    I love that. I often wake up in the middle of the night and just think and think and think about ‘issues’. I’m going to just turn that stream of thought off ( somehow).
