That Song In Your Head

How do you get rid of that song running around in your head?
Queue it up on Spotify and play the entire thing?
Pull up the lyrics and sing at the top of your lungs?
Replace it with another?

The Song That You Don’t Want in Your Head

The problem that too many people have is that they have a song in their heads that will never go away.
It goes like this:
“Me, Me. Meeee!”
We are here for others, not ourselves.
Think about others, do for others, and the world will improve.

You’re Smart

I made a mistake when I started a job.
I thought that my co-workers were all smarter than me.
Yeah, they knew more about what they were doing.
But what I was asked to do was different.
They knew their stuff, I knew my stuff.
I’m just a different kind of smart than they are.
So are you.
You are your own kind of smart.

Your First Try Won’t Be Great

The important thing is to try.

Your trying leads to something. That something is usually bad, but with practice turns into something good and with more practice becomes great.

Don’t expect the first draft to be perfect. It never is.

To get better at anything. Do more of that thing.

Try > Bad > Good > Great
