work more

the problem with self-help is that if you accept a treatment, you are agreeing to symptoms that you necessarily don't have. everyone has a bad day.

so to counter this, do the reverse, and accept things that only make you agree to the things you want to be - smart, effective, funny. the only thing there is to accept that confirms these traits is more responsibility at work.

stop wasting time on thinking you have to crank yourself (via self-help) up to get the job done, and just start getting the job done.

work melts the "supposed" symptom.
