October 8, 2014, TGIW: Unhumping Hump Day…and Gobs of Goods Coming Soon!

“You gotta have fun. Regardless of how you look at it, we’re playing a game. It’s a business, it’s our job, but I don’t think you can do well unless you’re having fun.” –Derek Jeter

Does the undone “to do” list steal the stage?

Do unexpected interruptions get treated like a red-headed stepchild?

When a seeming roadblock challenges progress, does it color the day darkly?

Though we often forget, we have the opportunity at all times to pivot our thinking toward another view.

“Thank God I have more to dos! And thank God I have the means, mind and motivation to do them!”

“How great that some person, predicament or piece of information came along to motivate me to stretch my mind and/or my means!”

“I obviously didn’t take everything into account, so how perfect that this wall appeared for me to learn to get over!”

Maybe it sounds like a Pollyanna way to live, but does the other way leave us playful at the end of the day?

Got perspective?

“I am going to keep having fun every day I have left, because there is no other way of life. You just have to decide whether you are a Tigger or an Eeyore.” –Randy Pausch
