DO SOMETHING POSITIVE, WHICH IS ALSO, DIFFICULT, UNUSUAL, DIFFERENT, RARE, OR SPECIAL. ANOTHER VERSION OF THIS IS TO DO SOMETHING ROUTINE, BUT EXTRA FAST OR COMPLETE IT UNUSUALLY EARLY. THESE ACTIONS TEND TO GIVE US AN EDGE WITH RESPECT TO FOCUS, ENERGY, INTEREST, ACCOLADES, REWARDS, AND SELF ESTEEM.

Most of us want to be known as someone special, and remembered for positive statements, traits, and accomplishments. Charles Tadros, M.D. June 16, 2022 Saint Louis, Missouri

IF YOU START THE DAY EARLY, GIVE YOURSELF PERMISSION TO FINISH THE DAY EARLY. THE REST OF THE DAY IS FOR YOU…YOUR WANTS AND YOU PLEASURE.

If you awaken at 4:00 AM and take a half hour to get ready, you will have put in an 8-hour work day by 12:30 (lunchtime)! The afternoon and evening are just for you. Charles Tadros, M.D. November 20, 2021 Saint Louis, Missouri

IF YOU PROUDLY WANT TO COMPLETE SOMETHING AHEAD OF SCHEDULE, GO AHEAD AND COMPLETE IT AND THEN INFORM OTHERS THAT YOU HAD CHOSEN TO COMPLETE IT EARLY. IF YOU INFORM OTHERS THAT YOU ARE GOING TO DO SOMETHING AHEAD OF SCHEDULE, AND THEN DO NOT, YOU HAVE JUST RAISED THE BAR ON YOURSELF AND THEN, PUBLICLY, NOT MET YOUR OWN EXPECTATIONS.

(Yes, some people do announce goals publicly in order to motivate themselves.) Charles Tadros, M.D. July 14, 2021 Saint Louis, Missouri
