This blog is always my highest priority. I put it above anything else we do here and many things I do in my personal life as well (including sleep). That being said, I've hit a wall here this week where the number of things I have in my schedule that are not movable -- including a trip to Detroit last week, a board meeting this past weekend and a speaking trip to Iowa that starts right now -- is forcing me to take a short break.
For the past month, I’ve been using a simple gueture with much success. Any time I’m crossing the street and I see a car coming a bit too fast, I just put my hand up in the “Stop” gesture and make eye contact with the driver, asserting my presence (not to mention the legality of my actions). It’s worked surprisingly well.
