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.
