- RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS
- ONE THOUSAND
On RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS... On Friday morning, I came to my car early in the morning ready to go to work... and my wallet was set on top of my car's hood! I was, like, "What is this doing here???" I had no idea I had lost or dropped my wallet! I thought my wallet was safely inside my purse the whole time. But I guess the night before, in my haste, I dropped my wallet right next to my car... and a kind somebody saw it, didn't take anything (I didn't have any money anyway, so that helps, right? Hehehe), and placed my wallet on top of my car's hood where I'd be sure to find it! WOW! Random acts of kindness still do exists! That's comforting! GOD bless whoever did this kind deed for me. Maybe I'll never know... but I hope I'll find out to say THANK YOU. But more than words, I am more prompted than ever to do random acts of kindness for others since I was so showered recently with this blessing. But even if I weren't shown this kind act, I should still want to do kind deeds for others because it IS the right thing to do. On ONE THOUSAND... Steno Nerd has reached over 1, 000 subscribers!!!

Procrastination keeps you from getting the job done and makes you feel anxious and guilty. So why are we all so good at it? Unlearn your procrastination skills with these tips:
- Focus on the starting line instead of the finish line. Define the first step. Projects are often composed of a series of smaller tasks, so identify the first and next steps and get satisfaction from checking them off.
- Allow for do-overs and view larger projects as a series of beginnings. If you get distracted while working on a task, don't scold yourself. Just start again.
- Meticulous overplanning can become a form of procrastination -- it feels like you're working but really you haven't begun.
- Schedule in leisure time. Promise yourself that you will take a break after 15 minutes. Or plan a day at the beach on Sunday after a full day's work on Saturday.
