Nell starts her day with a TO DO List.  She flips open a small yellow book titled “Diary of Daily Inspiration”  that she keeps at her desk.  She read somewhere that if you put an affirmation on the top of your list it can help you get your day started in a positive frame of mind.

Here are some she may use in the future.  Can you add to her list?

  3. If you can’t be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.

  8. Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.
