How Can I Recharge My Depleted Motivation?

How Can I Recharge My Depleted Motivation?

Change a Habit in Three Steps with This Flowchart I'm going to promote your comment by way of calling you out for being a bullshitter extraordinaire. Nicotine is one of the most famously addictive substances known. There are many cases reported of people who were told they had cancer, were on drugs and treatment to help them fight cancer, and yet could not stop smoking tobacco. The BBC had a documentary about this phenomenon at least 15 years ago. If you claim that you simply stopped your addiction to tobacco and 'it was easy', I can only suspect you to be either a liar or someone with above-human psychological abilities. Next, you denounce anyone who can't lose weight as being 'weak, lazy' and lacking motivation. You're a troll, right? Fuck you. I do know many people who have just quit tobacco, even after many many years. The simple fact is some people can do it, others cannot. Plenty of people quit that way.

The Simple Secret to Time Management: Jedi Time Tricks Reminds me of a concept described in a podcast. A given task can be categorized into 1 of 4 quadrants: Quadrant 1 Tasks: Urgent and Important Quadrant 2 Tasks: Important But Not Urgent Quadrant 3 Tasks: Urgent But Not Important Quadrant 4 Tasks: Neither Urgent Nor Important It's the Important-But-Not-Urgent tasks that we naturally skimp on, despite how crucial they are to our well-being. Yeah, I think this is a great way to consider our tasks.

Shameless Self-Promotion Is a Good Thing in Job Interviews I'll agree with this more. I think the self-promotion comes in more for me during the prep process when I'm anticipating their questions because I want to think of 10 different examples of how awesome I've been. For the actual interview, I just emphasize those examples and comment a little extra. Like, I had an interview with a company that is notoriously goal-based (you have daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly sales quotas that come into play for your bonus and your managers' bonuses), so I talked about taking way too many classes at once with a full-time job. They asked about handling a customer service issue, and I told them about a family that I took care of when the housekeeping staff didn't clean their room and we had no other available ones. At the end of both of these, I said something along the lines of, "It was nice to feel proud of myself for handling more than I knew I could." If they challenged me on those, though, then I would have backed down, so there's that.

How to Survive the 10 Grueling Levels of Office Hell Suggestions. 1 - eat when you are hungry. Eating at "specified food consumption scheduled times" is silly unless you have a medical condition to do so. I eat when I am actually hungry, like hunger pang hungry. and as to what to eat? anything you want. I carry a spare PB&J spread in a tortilla and rolled up in my lunch for the days I may work late. and it can sit in the lunch bag for 24 hours without a problem. 2 - Pack food that does not need to be chilled if you dont have a fridge available. Look for cookbooks that specifically are meant for picnics. As for eating habits for the other 3 days of the week, try to just eat when you are hungry and as much as you can in reference to your eating habits for the 4 days of the week that you do work. I've done night shifts and managing your eating habits and sleeping schedule is something that you'll always have to work on. You can't go wrong with sandwiches. 2 tubes of Go-Gurt (yeah, it's marketed for kids, but it's an easy lunch item)
