Grace's MOTIVATION Monday

Great place to be...

Allow what wants to happen, to happen. Allow what is right, to be, and to expand.

Don’t fight against your own authentic nature. Embrace the unique beauty of the gifts you have to give.

Live with joy and positive purpose in the moment, whatever it may bring. Do what you know is right, what you know is best, and what you know is true.

Life is more magnificent than you can ever imagine. Go ahead and imagine anyway, from the perspective of what you love and value the most, and bring what you imagine to life.

Every day is an opportunity to do great and meaningful work, and to experience life in new, fulfilling ways. Every day is a day in which you can make life better for others and for yourself.

Treasure each moment without letting the negative distractions get in your way. Put positive, meaningful, satisfying effort into life, and continue to feel how great it is to make a difference.

Geek of the Week: ColdTurkey

This Windows application blocks a computer from social media, addicting websites, games and even programs. It is a perfect solution for businesses and schools worried that their company computers are being used for non work/school related activity.

You can also schedule the blocking. Maybe open it up during lunch hour or after school?

An administration password is required to configure and disable the program, so users can't shut it down, even from the task manager.  

 

Cost: $10 (½ of that is donated to charity).

Grace's MOTIVATION Monday

Enjoy this very moment...

You don’t need ideal conditions in order to enjoy an ideal life. You can simply make the choice to do so.

You don’t have to wait until the perfect moment to be happy. Any moment and every moment will do, including this one.

Whatever you’re doing, add a smile and a positive attitude to it. Life’s beauty is everywhere, so make the empowering choice to see it everywhere.

You can choose to complain about your lot in life and to feel sorry for yourself, or you can choose to enjoy the wonder that’s all around you. Keep in mind that there’s valuable opportunity in everything, and a positive perspective enables you to tap into that opportunity.

Geek of the Week: The Package

A puzzle game that, like a Rube Goldberg Machine, requires the user to employ a series of conveyor belts, ramps, fans, and springed boxing gloves to move a box through increasingly difficult and dangerous mailrooms.  Very reminiscent of the old video game The Incredible Machine.
