When paint won't dry....

Arriving at the job on the second day with a fresh mind, I realized I had gotten a good bit done the day before. And I was realizing that concentrating on what was yet to be done was dragging me down. I decided to concentrate on the work and keep my focus on what was behind me, not what was ahead. I felt a lot better mentally about the job and there was a huge improvement in my productivity, having done considerably more the second day than the first. The quality of work was better as well. It was a learning experience that has served me well over the years. A tool for the mental('s) toolbox.
Me?

I believe you, just riding you a bit. So what, even if you were, isn't mockery the sincerest form of flattery?
