Here it comes…. Mercury retrograde! I didn’t know this existed for the longest time – and now that I’m aware of it, I’m a firm believer! The short version: Over the next few weeks, if you have (more than usual!) issues with electronics, trouble with your commute, more squabbles with your family, and increased misunderstandings at work – you can blame it on Mercury. Good luck everybody! http://www.huffingtonpost.com/larry-schwimmer/mercury-retrograde-oct-4-_b_5927044.html
Gone With the Wind Movie Was Released in 1939.
And now, in celebration of the film’s 75th Anniversary, you have the opportunity to see it on the big screen! I may have to go see it.. Will you?
Have a great week everyone!
This is a great article.
Now, I don’t know about you, but I EXCEL at procrastination. In fact, I’ve been called a “great time-wasting engineer”. Terrible.
The problem can be traced back to that strange, mysterious thing which efficient people call the “step-by-step process”. Herein lies the issue. For me, that phrase translates to “does not compute, does not compute, does not compute”. lol.
I believe we procrastinators do, in fact envision a most glorious, successful, completed end-goal of whatever it is we desire….and really WANT it! But it’s just the GETTING there that seems insurmountable. I start a million things, but rarely do I finish them – even though I have the best intentions and dream of reaching my goals. Dreaming. That’s another problem.
Dreaming and wanting does not equal DOING.
A senior manager once gave me a great bit of advice. He said what worked for him was writing out this single phrase on an index card or Post-it note. Place it where you will see it everyday: your desk, your bathroom mirror, your computer, anywhere. It helps jumpstart oneself into action.
This is what you write : WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
A combination of using that note, along with the advice from the article should help – and if you don’t procrastinate in reading the article – you might find it helpful as well! Best of luck to all my fellow procrastinators out there!!
WE CAN DO IT !! Have faith :)
A film for everyone, especially for romantics.
Nothing “bad” is shown in this movie, but people under the age of 18 may not have an appreciation for it – I think it may appeal more to celibate and married, middle-aged/older people.
The Lunchbox is an interesting film about a friendship that develops due to a error in the day-to-day process of having lunch delivered.
I was fascinated to see – and subsequently learn – about dabbawalas, which I didn’t know about. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dabbawalas
During the film I thought, why aren’t there cafeterias? Why aren’t folks bringing their own lunches to work? But then I realized, this system helps increase wealth through the creation of jobs, and this process is part of a culture different than to what I have been exposed to. It really is fascinating, and I am so grateful for having learned something new!
The story and acting are terrific, I highly recommend this movie!
Have an old laptop just lying around?
Not sure what to do with it?
