lookin' up

My personal cure for the doldrums:  make a nice long to-do list, down to the minutia ("Brush teeth.  Eat breakfast.  Meeting at 8 a.m.  Draft first draft of contract amendment.  Send e-mail to John Doe.").

Then spend the day crossing through each item completed.  Every time that pen scratches through a finished task, my mood lightens.  By the end of the day, even if everything isn't crossed off my list, I feel just that much closer to being a superhero.

Things are looking up, friends.  Keep on keepin' on.
