Rules of Engagement
I’ve had a bit of a sour attitude lately, it is time to go back to what I know. One of the things that has helped me in the past is a formal gratitude list. All things worth while have rules, this is no different.
Rule 1: One entry per day, first thing in the morning. 30 days in a row is the only thing that counts. Miss a day and start over. Post 2 in a day, start over.
Rule 2: When in doubt, see rule 1.
I’m going to post here every day…after I have tweeted them. It will start on March 25, 2013. Stay Tuned!
