(OK, I admit the title is a stretch in my alphabetic theme.)
Take the time to think about what you are doing and saying.
Does it make you feel good? Does it bring you closer to your goal? Is it WORKING?
If what you're doing and saying isn't working, stop doing it. Replace ineffectual thinking with an interior pep talk. Exchange paper shuffling with action, click out of the game you were playing and get back to writing your masterpiece. Examine your actions and examine your thoughts. If they aren't contributing to a happy, successful and contented you, pitch them.
