A clean slate…and a deadline

20070217snow As I looked out the kitchen window this morning, I was struck by how the wind had drifted over the new snow.  How it was a fresh start…pristine. And I wondered what it would look like at the end of the day.

Sometimes, I have that same reaction to a blank piece of paper (or computer screen).  It needs to come to life.  But what will it be?   

You’re on deadline.  It could be a postcard for a trade show appearance, a new e-mail blast, a personal note to a friend on an important day, the annual report…it doesn’t matter what…the dilemma is the same.

The blank slate is before you.  The deadline is barreling towards you.  How do you move from a wind-wisped canvas to your latest masterpiece?
