Organize Your Jobs Today…

most difficult

“If it’s your job to eat a frog, it’s best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it’s your job to eat two frogs, it’s best to eat the biggest one first.”—Mark Twain—

It is much easier to share a smile if you have taken care of the unpleasant or difficult parts of the day. Make a list today, even a mental list will help. Prioritize your goals so that things end up on a pleasant and easy note.

As I pay attention to the more practiced workmen on a landscaping job, I see that they prefer to get the more difficult part of the day’s work done first and then sail through the easy tasks to finish the day.

And they share smiles, laugh, and joke as they work
Everything is going to be all right

Be Totally Selfish Today

“The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up.”—Mark Twain—
Let us be selfish today. Let’s do something that makes us feel good. A random act of kindness or extending a kindness toward a friend will elevate our own spirits. It works every time. And like Mark Twain said, try to cheer somebody else up. It will make you happy.
John P. Schulz

And share a smile as you perform your selfish deeds
Everything is going to be all right

Today, be selfish–by being kind

Deal With Contention

Quotes and Notes #325, September 25

What a tangled web is negativism

What a tangled web is negativism

“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”—Mark Twain—

It’s good to be nice to everyone—but there are those who will counter your niceness with negativism, bitterness, or contention. In such cases, try this; keep on being nice, but don’t pay attention to smallness, it is beneath you. Shrug your shoulders and move on.

It’s easy to smile when you are moving on.
Everything is going to be all right
