We have good days and we have bad days!
And when bad days unfold they don’t come alone – they come with their friends … more bad days. It could be your gadgets failing you or your memory or your people or your clients or your <name it> ….. misery seems to just cascade down.
In a situation like this what do you do?
I will tell you what I do and it works!
When it seems one of those days when the entire universe is conspiring to keep me away from what I want I consciously take ten minutes out of my schedule to “think, recollect & remind myself”. I give myself the task of “counting my blessings”.Not all just five of them. I tell myself, “this useless task is not going to alleviate me of my miseries but I have promised myself and so I will and when I am done I will go back to feeling miserable”
I do it.
I needn’t tell you what happens next. You know it. I feel better. I start looking at what is the little that is working and I run with that. And misery soon takes a back seat.
