Inertia….or why we procrastinate!

First let’s start with some definitions.    dictionary logo

Definition of INERTIA

1
“a : a property of matter by which it remains at rest or in uniform motion in the same straight line unless acted upon by some external force.”
( My interpretation:  I would rather live with my old kitchen just like it is, but when the dishwasher leaks on my floor, i.e.,the external  force, I must change my attitude of satisfaction with the way things are, to dissatisfaction with the current state of affairs.)
2. :“indisposition to motion, exertion, or change.”  My interpretation: It’s just easier to do nothing…. or as often said, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
 “indisposition to motion, exertion, or change” is a serious problem.  Inertia stops progress!  Inertia is bad for the economy!  Inertia is bad for healthy relationships!  Inertia prevents us from leading a full, productive, and happy life!   Inertia prevents us from making improvements in our surroundings (….but it’s just easier to leave things as they are)
OK….so here is my call to action:  (disclaimer–I sell kitchen appliances)  You are living with a lousy kitchen…. the dishwasher is noisy and does not clean well; there is not enough counter space; only 2 burners work on the cooktop, and the oven has not worked in months!  HEY, IT’S TIME FOR A KITCHEN MAKE-OVER!phone1 (1)Banish fear…..learn about new energy star appliances that can save you time and money…..visit a showroom where you can experience “Appliance Happiness.” Appliance Happiness

Calm
 
Once our customers realize that we are not high-pressure but instead committed to listening then recommending the best appliance options, a sense of calm and relaxation occurs. It may be the most relaxed feeling you can experience in a retail store.

Acceptance

Debbie Weaver, star of the hit ABC show The Neighbors, made a profound statement in a recent episode.  She said,  “We can’t change what we are on the outside….we can only change who we are on the inside.”

It seemed like a great life lesson, and important to remember at home and at work.    So the thought for today is this:  “When people look at you, do they see the what or the who?  What can you do today to change that perception?

I’m smiling as I share this thought with you today!   By Tom Burns,  Seller of things essential to life as we know it….

The Happiness Project

William James, the famous psychologist, theorized that actions create feelings.Image

He suggested that old theories were incorrect.  We don’t cry because we are sad, rather, we are sad because we cry.  Likewise, I would suggest that we don’t smile because we are happy, but we are happy because we smile!

I want to suggest an experiment at work tomorrow.  As you start your day, force a BIG SMILE!  Hold that smile for about 30 seconds and analyze your feelings.  As you smile, do you notice others around you following your example?  Do you sense that everyone is feeling positive and happy?

Later in the day as you face an important task, lay out your work, sit up very straight, cross your arms in front of you, and look at your work with a look of determination.  Does it make you feel stronger, more capable, and more willing to tackle the project?

At your next face-to-face meeting, sit forward on your seat, hands folded on the table, back straight and eyes forward with a determined expression on your face.  Do you feel “Large and In Charge?”

Try this several times throughout the day.  Create the emotion by first creating the behavior!  Having a tough day?  Try standing up and smiling as you answer the phone. I guarantee the conversation will be much more positive and enjoyable!

I call it “The Happiness Project!”  Share it with your friends and co-workers and tell me how it worked out.  It really is possible to create happiness!

“Cooking is an art…”

“Cooking is an art and patience a virtue… Careful shopping, fresh ingredients and an unhurried approach are nearly all you need. There is one more thing – love. Love for food and love for those you invite to your table. With a combination of these things you can be an artist – not perhaps in the representational style of a Dutch master, but rather more like Gauguin, the naïve, or Van Gogh, the impressionist. Plates or pictures of sunshine taste of happiness and love.”
~ Keith Floyd – a British chef and television personality who hosted numerous cooking shows for the BBC
