Turning Bad Days Into Good Ones
You wake up late, you spill your coffee, you have too much to do at work.
You’re having a bad day.
If you’re like me, this means you’ll feel that frustration, that tension, boil up. But do you know what that does? Nothing.
What that does is make sure that you focus on every little thing that does not go your way. It makes your day go from bad to worse. It’s a snowballing effect, with small negative things balling up and getting bigger and bigger, collecting other small negative things along the way.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Instead don’t let those small negative things take over your day. Yes, bad things happen, and they happen in small packages frequently. That’s no excuse.
When those negative things happen, it puts you on the defensive. Then you’re just reacting to every little thing that happens afterward.
Instead, go on the offensive. Take the day ahead of you and crush it. Don’t give those negative little things a chance to take hold. Give them a chance to run and hide.
If you do that, your bad day will soon be a good one.
