|Hello, folks - Here is
Jack Canfield's second (of seven) Principles
of Success and Happiness:
Studies have shown that feeling appreciated is the single greatest motivator in the workplace, ahead of higher wages. "When you show people that you appreciate them, you not only make them feel better, you make yourself more successful. People are more likely to help you achieve your goals if they believe that you appreciate their efforts," says Canfield. "There's no downside - appreciation costs nothing, and no one has ever complained about being overappreciated.
One technique that Canfield has used in the past is to carry an index card with 10 circles on it. Whenever he lets someone know that he appreciated them, he filled in one of the circles. If he didn't fill in all the circles by the end of the day, he would send out appreciative emails. After a few months, showing appreciation became second nature to him, and he didn't need the index cards. Whatever method you wish to use to remind yourself, the value of appreciation is never lost on anyone.

Stretch Of The
Many people don't realize
that they have 6 muscles that control the
eyes, and like every other muscle in your
body, they can be strained from overuse.
A great way to "stretch" and
actually relax these 6 muscles is to do
this set of stretches. With your eyes not
focused on anything, look up and look down
3 times; then look side to side 3 times;
next look to the upper left and the lower
right 3 times; and finally look to the
upper right and the lower left 3 times.
Repeat the whole set a second time. If
you feel an achiness behind your eyes,
do the exercise slower. When you do the
exercise regularly, like once a day, you
will notice the achiness go away.
How To Survive A Heart
Attack When Alone
Let's say it's 6:15 PM.
and you're driving home (alone), after
an unusually hard day on the job. You're
really tired, upset, and frustrated. Suddenly
you start experiencing severe pain in your
chest that starts to radiate out into your
arm and up into your jaw. You are only
about five miles from the hospital nearest
your home. Unfortunately you don't know
if you'll be able to make it that far.
You have been trained in CPR, but the person
that taught the course did not tell you
how to perform it on yourself.
The person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness. However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, (like it would if you were coughing up a hairball) :) A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without letup until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.
Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get themselves to a hospital, and increase their chance for survival.

Possessions dwindle: I mourn
their loss. But I mourn the loss of time
much more, for anyone can save his purse,
but none can win back lost time. Latin
