Biting Dogs & Creating

A dog bit my friend. He needed stitches.


When I was a kid my neighbor asked me to feed their two dogs while they left town for several days. I agreed. Half-way through the week a friend was over and when it came time to feed the dogs he decided to join in. He was a dog guy.


One was a Saint-Bernard. The other a sixty pound mutt.


While I was feeding George, the Saint-Bernard, my friend was attacked by the other dog - bitten on the arm in several places in the blink of an eye. Rascal was protecting his food bowl thinking my friend was there to steal it, when in fact he was simply trying to fill it.


In your creative pursuits, your journey toward your goals and your vision...do you know when it's appropriate to protect and defend?

Do you know when it's time to sit back and be thankful?

Can you tell when someone is helping or hurting?

Are you able to do both at the same time?
