1. Do not multitask. Instead, focus on a single task for an allotted amount of time.
2. If your job comes with constant interruptions that demand your attention, take several deep breaths and then prioritize them.
3. Resist the urge to answer the phone every time it rings unless it's your boss.
4. If someone asks you to drop what you're doing to help with a problem, it's OK to tell them, "I'll be finished with what I'm doing in 10 minutes, then I'm all yours."
5. When you "get stuck" in a task, change your physical environment to stimulate your senses. Get up, take a walk outside, and look at the flowers and the birds. Change what you're seeing. Or turn on some relaxing music that makes you feel happy.
6. Delegate. Have compassion for yourself and reach out for help.

According to top speaker Brian Tracy, the key to happiness is to dedicate yourself to the development of your natural talents and abilities by doing it to the best of your abilities. "You can be happy only when you are living your life in the very best way possible," says Tracy.
Brian's action steps for achieving happiness: (1) define the activities you really love and enjoy, and (2) organize your life so you do more of them.

In the movie Spiderman III, Flint Marko a.k.a. the Sandman tells his estranged wife, "I am not a bad person; I've just had bad luck."
Some people may think saying such a thing amounts to little more than making excuses.
But Marko did indeed have bad fortune: his young daughter was seriously ill.
Conversely some motivational speakers and self-help writers say that luck should not be a factor in your life or success, and that you are solely responsible for your life as it is.
And years ago, a high-powered executive in a TV commercial said with disdain when an employee wished him luck in an important meeting: "Luck is for rabbits."
To which I say: horse hooey.
Example: At a National Speakers Association meeting where I was also a speaker, I listened to a motivational speaker who said in his talk, "It's not the road; it's the runner."
The audience clapped in appreciation...except me. I sat stone-faced and offended.
I wanted to tell him, but didn't, that what he said was not true.
The more accurate statement would be: "It IS the road AND the runner."
Despite what positive thinkers tell you, luck is a huge factor determining the quality of your life, though certainly not the sole factor.
And luck, by definition, is beyond your control, which means much of the quality of your life (but not all) is beyond your control.
Sorry, but that's just the way it is.
The remedy is to exert control over those things you can in fact control, one of which is your reaction to your luck, bad or good.
W. Mitchell, Epictetus, and others have said words to the effect that "it's not what happens to you; it's how you handle it."
I disagree. I believe it IS what happens to you AND how you handle it.
If you have bad luck and are not handling it well, the quality of your life will suffer even more.
And maybe you want to seek some help, be it a psychotherapist, anti-depressants, a support group, a coach, or whatever.
But do not blame yourself or punish yourself because you feel you are not coping well.
You are doing the best you can at this time under the circumstances.
I urge you to seek the help I just mentioned so you can gradually do and feel better and better.
By the way, you should ruthlessly prune from your life anyone who criticizes the way you are coping and says they could do better if they were in your shoes.
You know and I know they most likely could not.
Remember, it's easy to criticize. But no one knows what you are facing or how difficult it is to handle unless they have been through the exact same thing. And 99.99% of people have not.
I close by quoting Stephen King from his new novel Mr. Mercedes: "Life is a crap carnival with shit prizes."
Bob Bly is the author of "World's Best Copywriting Secrets" and has written copy for more than 100 companies including IBM, Boardroom, Medical Economics and AT&T. He is the author of more than 75 books and a columnist for Target Marketing, Early To Rise and The Writer. McGraw-Hill calls him "America's top copywriter".

Business strategist Dan Waldschmidt offers 6 suggestions for jumping off the excuse train and forging the path to your goals.
1. Don't blame others for anything.
2. Stop working on things that just don't matter.
3. Do not wallow in self-doubt.
4. Ask yourself, "What can I do better next time?" And then do it next time.
5. Proactively take time to do things that fuel your passion.
6. Apologize to yourself and those around you for having a bad attitude. Do this once or twice and you'll snap out of your funk pretty fast.

You take off. You're sprinting as fast as you can. You take long strides and push through the pressure of the wind that hits your face.
You stare straight ahead, completely focused on your target, the end of the 400-meter race track.

There is one ingredient in life that every person in the world longs for.
It’s an ingredient that can shift your life from good to great, from boring to amazing, from mediocre to fulfilling.
What is that ingredient?
Passion makes you come alive with enthusiasm and joy. It's like the feeling you get when you first fall in love...when everything seems brighter and easier.
Unfortunately, most of us have no idea how to find our life passion. Or if we do find it, we're too fearful or uncertain to actually make it happen in our lives.
Is that you?
Have you found yourself longing for something more?
Do you feel like you are lost and on the wrong path in life?
Do you hate your job or feel blah about your life?
If so, I have some good news to share with you.
My friend and Life Passion Coach, Barrie Davenport, created a formula to lead you through the process of uncovering life passion and creating a plan of action to make it happen.
She teaches it in her online course called The Path To Passion.
Are you ready to find the passion that makes you come alive again? If so, I highly recommend you check out Barrie’s course.
