Whether you're a painter or a doughnut maker, you are having a mighty productive beginning of the month. You're working in watercolor. You're experimenting with chocolate fudge sauce. You're getting in there with the oil paints. You're using coconut flakes in whole new ways. Yep, a lot of interesting things could come out of this very creative phase you're in right now. The 3rd, catch your breath and take a look at what you made. Pink sunsets over palm trees? Pink frosting galore? Not bad, not bad. Go ahead and be proud of yourself on the 6th, then get back to work. The 12th and 13th are going to be fantastic days when your creativity will reach new heights. The 17th, things just get easier: Your paints are just thin enough, your frosting is smooth, your thinking is clear. The 21st, you could be well on your way to creating a whole new movement in painting or doughnut-making or whatever it else it is that you do. The 23rd, talk to some of your colleagues (how do they use chocolate sprinkles?). By the 27th, be prepared for a whole lot of activity. You could have buyers, sellers and wholesalers all breathing down your neck. But don't forget -- it's good business! You can get back to the part you like -- creating -- on the 30th, but only after you've taken a little time out to reflect on everything you've done so far this month.
