From the Happiness Project

Wednesday 3 June 2009

Great reminders from Gretchen Rubin:

  • “Ask for help”
  • “Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good” (i.e., don’t do endless research to find the “best,” just find a good choice and act)
  • “I am as smart as most people” (if lots of other people can figure this out, I probably can too)
  • “Put myself in jail” (pretend that I’m in jail, so I have all the time and patience in the world to tackle a problem).

The second is particularly timely for me.
Which speaks to you the loudest?
