Good Advice from My Bathroom Drawer
I started to uncommittedly (is that a word?) clean out my bathroom drawers yesterday. They pretty much look like my kitchen junk drawer but with a decidedly hygienic and cosmetic slant. That said, I did find a few surprises. Apparently at some point in the past I cleaned out my purse, and having no good place to put the junk in my purse, I put it in a bathroom drawer. Makes sense, right? Hence, the college i.d. and random notes I found today. One of these random notes includes a quote from 100 Ways to Motivate Yourself: Change Your Life Forever, by Steve Chandler. Apparently I was feeling a little unmotivated even then; also, at my old job I had free online access to business self-help books. This is something I carefully copied down on a post-it and taped to my computer monitor. It's good advice, especially for me. I may have to find a new place to put it. Preferably not in a bathroom drawer.
