Things we can do to be the best we can be :)

  1. The guts to eat the right stuff. junk tastes gooood but try drinking as much water as you can. then watch what you take in cos it can make you or break you. an electric juicer is still the best tool for gulping up the desired, but often dreaded, greens :)
  2. Get out of your comfort zone... do something. do one thing every week that scares you. slap yourself when you get crazy lazy & it's not an official holiday. shake your boo-tay when you like the music you hear, cos angels aside, you are down and depressed sometimes! think of what, in the 9 lives of a cat, you believe in... you have to believe in SOMETHING... make yourself useful. puwera plastikan.

  3. Compliment someone (and mean it). I read this somewhere before and it's so great. there isn't a snowball's chance in hell you wouldn't get a kick out of it-- it works with anyone cos everyone is somewhat vain and wants a compliment! how bout saying THANK YOU to someone... or making a peace offering... there has to be someone you haven't talked to in a while? make peace, not war. make loooove, not war

  4. Find something to LIKE. a new film? song? out of the box idea? a new dream job? a new tambayan? something about your PAST? laugh. try it now, smile. makes you feel good already i'm sure. laugh cos something's funny, laugh cos you find something ridiculous. laugh cos it's good for you. laugh cos you can.

  5. Never allow anyone to say you don't have a BACKBONE. take a break. know when & why you have to be fair to yourself. know how to cry whether out of relief or remorse. know when something is hurting you. know when something is an act of truth or just an act, period. know when something is, or isn't, good for you. don't stress yourself out about it all... rest, and try to see why you should be proud of your decisions.

What's the meaning of it?

For most of us, work is a fact of life. Whether your paycheck helps care for a family, a home, tuition, or simply what you need to stay alive. But the issue there is if you are satisfied and rewarded in everything you do.

According to recent research, most of us also have conflicting feelings about our work. Over 84 percent of men and 77 percent of women say that, even if they had enough money to get by without working, they would continue to work because of the satisfaction it provides. But when these same people were asked if they would rather be doing something else at that moment, by far the largest number of “yes” answers came from those who were at work at the time.

This isn't exactly earth shattering news. Who doesn't know that it's more fun to do something pleasant, rather that something tedious that needs to be done? Or that succesfully finishing something helps you feel good about yourself? Life is about a choices. You can't have it all, can you?

But here's the real question: Is there a way to make the necessary-but-unpleasant things-we-have-to-do more enjoyable? If you discover how to do that, you’ve really hit the jackpot in terms of building the foundation for a satisfying and rewarding lifestyle.

All three of these characteristics—quality of attention, use of multiple skills and talents, and personal creativity and control—are involved in finding satisfaction and meaning in any kind of work. Doing work the same way you’ve done it a million times before is going to be less stimulating, less meaningful, and less rewarding than it could be.

If you want to make the things you need to do as satisfying as the things you like to do, find ways to personalize your efforts so that you are paying close attention to what you’re doing, using as many of your skills and abilities (including imagination) as you can, taking control of your own attitude, and being as creative as possible. The better you get at this, the more every action you take will contribute to your own satisfaction and happiness. And there you will say, "This is it, the real meaning of My Job Well Done... :)
