A few years ago, I discovered a brilliant website, www.despair.com. I had just finished a 10 year stint with Franklin Covey, and having been in a place where motivation, inspiration and empowerment is almost a religion, it was good fun to see someone mock it. Those at despair take the popular motivational posters that hang in every office in America, and rewrite the lines into some of the funniest stuff I've ever read. I posted one last week, "Beauty". Here's another. I think I'll do this periodically. Use them as your daily affirmations. A good laugh is probably more effective than any of that motivational hoopla.
