An easy way to feel better about your day

If your Friday is going as crappy as mine (a so far unsuccessful struggle to get a new piece of equipment to work), then I have some good advice to make sure you still walk out of the door feeling like you've accomplished something today:

Instead of putting on your to do list: "fix piece of equipment", say "work on piece of equipment for x hours". Then if x hours have passed, you can cross this off your list and very effectively fool yourself into thinking you did something today. It works on me at least!
