Day with a Difference – 18-Dec-12

Quote of the day
“In any moment of decision the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.” – Theodore Roosevelt

Thought of the day

There are two types of goals. Outcome goals give you direction, such as winning or making a particular play. Process goals include mastering the fundamentals and strategy to be competitive in basketball. You dramatically increase your chances of making a basket by focusing on the process and letting the outcome take care of itself. When you focus on the outcome, you open yourself up to the fear of missing or losing. If you make a bad play or make a mistake, it is easier to become angry.

Fear and anger are negative emotions that adversely affect your brain’s chemistry and performance. You will be more relaxed and efficient by focusing on instinctive execution, rather than thinking about scoring or winning. While you may not be able to control the outcome, you can control your thoughts and actions to improve the process. Success in mastering the process builds confidence and makes it easier to achieve your desired outcome.

Joke of the day
A doctor of psychology was doing his normal morning rounds when he entered a patient’s room. He found Patient #1 sitting on the floor, pretending to saw a piece of wood in half. Patient #2 was hanging from the ceiling, by his feet. The doctor asked patient number 1 what he was doing. The patient replied, "Can’t you see I’m sawing this piece of wood in half?" The doctor inquired of Patient #1 what Patient #2 was doing. Patient #1 replied, "Oh. He’s my friend, but he’s a little crazy. He thinks he’s a light bulb." The doctor looks up and notices Patient #2’s face is going all red. The doctor asks Patient #1, "If he’s your friend, you should get him down from there before he hurts himself" Patient #1 replies, "What? And work in the dark?"
Have a great day!
