#1: Make a List
Reflect back to the time you accepted your position. What were the aspects of this job that were important to you then? Try to remember how excited you were about these.
Now list ten reasons why you still like your job. Keep this list where you will come across it occasionally. When you do come across it, stop what you are doing and read it.
#41: Take Ten!
The next time you can't get started on a task or project, tell yourself you will only work on it for ten minutes. Chances are you will stick with it once you've started, but even if you move on after ten minutes, you will have accomplished that much more.
#61: Go the Extra Mile
Give twice as much today as you normally do. Really go the extra mile. Instead of focusing on how much you have to do, or how little you get paid for it, give it all you've got just for today.
#91: Try Something Different
Albert Einstein's definition of insanity is to "keep doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results." If you're not getting the results you're after, why not try a different way?
#101: List Your Accomplishments
Make a list of all the things you have accomplished in the past year. There are at least seven. Reflect on how productive you really have been, and how many great days you've had. Make today another one.
