Five Ways to Feel Motivated When You’re Not

Get up. No, I really mean it. GET UP. The worst thing you can do is stay where you’re at…whether it’s sitting on your office chair, lying in bed, or vegging on the sofa. A body in motion tends to stay in motion and all that, remember? And it’s true for your...

One response, eh?

  I’m hoping you can help explain these statistics. Remember that “I used to hate Mondays” post from last week? Here are the raw stats from that email that was sent out to a portion of my list: 708 subscribers were sent that email.   144 opened...
