Field of white flowersThere are plenty of people, situations, world events, and so forth that could cause you to feel crummy (or worse) about your day. To be productive, it helps when you feel great about your day. Here are ten such ideas. Generate as many more as you can.

  1. Tip more than is expected. Significantly more.
  2. Treat yourself as if you’re worth it.
  3. Be as patient with your family and loved ones as you are with your customers and clients.
  4. Treat time as more valuable than money. “Spend” some time on yourself.
  5. Remember how you are making a difference through your work and/or personal life.
  6. Be gracious to everyone around you, especially those who are somewhat or significantly younger or older than you are.
  7. Write things on your “to-do” list that you did that day and then cross them off.
  8. Consider what you have to be thankful for–both the “big” things and the “small” things.
  9. Bake cookies or make a crock pot of soup and give some to your neighbors.
  10. Hug someone who needs it (especially your pets)!

These ten work, and you probably have ten more. Keep this list handy. Some days you might need reminding.

Throughout your days and your weeks, you have “hot spots” where you have the potential to be optimally productive. It is during these times that you can be “in the zone,” working at “Mach 10,” and getting things done that are of the most benefit to you and your company.
