On Saturday I spent about 2 hours sawing a shuffleboard table in half.
If you know the type of game table I’m talking about you know that it’s about 8-9 feet long and made of heavy wood. It was a chore.
You don’t really need to know why we were doing it, but that the table needed to be moved and this was the easiest way to do it.
I had started out the day in a rather low mood, but by the end of the day, after being totally focused on the project and working with some young guys who are a lot of fun to be around, my spirits were soaring.
Sometimes the best way to get out of the doldrums is to simply get to work. Don’t spend a lot of time trying to think your way out of the hole you’re in, just get to digging.
If you are feeling low and slow right now, what project or activity could you jump into that would engage you and possibly take you up and out of your funk?
Here’s a hint: Don’t think it through too deeply, just do something! (do you have a shuffleboard table of your own?)
