ON THIS DAY: Positive Thinking Day

Positive Thinking DayThe difference between can and cannot are only three letters. Three letters that determine your life’s direction.

September 13th is Positive Thinking Day.  Nobody likes a pessimist, except other pessimists.  Being around positive people puts you in a better mood and has been proven to produce better outcomes.  Try waking up in the morning and thinking just one positive thought.  If you start your day with something positive there’s a better likelihood it will continue throughout the day.  Stuck in traffic on the way to work?  Who cares!  It could be a lot worse.  At least you have a job.  Think positive. Be positive.

ON THIS DAY: National Boss-Employee Exchange Day

Boss Employee Exchange DayNow we normally wouldn’t suggest this, but today may be a good day to ask for a raise.  If it wasn’t National Boss/Employee Exchange Day we’d tell you otherwise, only because it’s Monday and that’s traditionally the worst day of the week to ask.  The objective of this celebration is to encourage one another to share respective points of view.  There isn’t anything that says you need to agree on those points, so don’t come blaming us if you’re without a job tomorrow!  At least we tried…

On This Day: Neither Rain nor Snow Day

Neither Rain Nor Snow DayMother Nature is a bitch!  Don’t toy with us on a holiday like today.  Ok, we’re being a little selfish.  Neither Rain Nor Snow Day is intended to recognize the mail couriers whose motto is carved on the New York post office – “Neither snow nor rain not heat nor gloom of night ,stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.” We hate to be a pain, but we don’t see any mention of: hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, or earthquakes.  Call us hard-asses, but someone has to hold people responsible.  We can’t just go naming holidays after every occupation – like Google Commemoration Day! Oops… p.s. Happy Birthday Google!
