AAARRRGHH, I don’t want to apply for jobs today!!! I want to go back to bed and pretend the world doesn’t exist!!!! Why didn’t I write the letters last week???? Stupid, stupid, stupid procrastination….
Well, I’d better do it since I’ve got no choice. Four letters, today, or my unemployment benefits being cut. Not that hard of a decision, but I’d still rather do it tomorrow…
1 application done, 1 profile uploaded to a job website. 2 applications to go!!!
2 applications, 2 curriculum vitae uploads. Enough for today. Next time I’ll not postphone it to the last day. (Or maybe I’ll have a job by then, even better!)
Plus, made apple pie. I felt like I deserved it. But I’ll eat it tomorrow, because it’s way to late for apple pie right now…
I am not a courageous person by nature. I have simply discovered that, at certain key moments in this life, you must find courage in yourself, in order to move forward and live. It is like a muscle and it must be exercised, first a little, and then more and more. All the really exciting things possible during the course of a lifetime require a little more courage than we currently have. A deep breath and a leap.

Six simple rituals:
1. Drink a glass of water when you wake up. Your body loses water while you sleep, so you’re naturally dehydrated in the morning. A glass of water when you wake helps start your day fresh.
2. Define your top 3. Every morning ask yourself, “What are the top three most important tasks that I will complete today?” Prioritizes your day accordingly and don’t sleep until the Top 3 are complete.
3. The 50/10 Rule. Solo-task and do more faster by working in 50/10 increments. Use a timer to work for 50 minutes on only one important task with 10 minute breaks in between. Spend your 10 minutes getting away from your desk, going outside, calling friends, meditating, or grabbing a glass of water.
4. Move and sweat daily. Regular movement keeps us healthy and alert. It boosts energy and mood, and relieves stress.
5. Express gratitude. Gratitude fosters happiness. Each morning, think of at least five things you’re thankful for. In times of stress, pause and reflect on these things.
6. Reflect daily. Bring closure to your day through 10 minutes of reflection. Asks yourself, “What went well?” and “What needs improvement?”
