What's In Your Feel-Good File?
She writes: "I saved favorite emails, accolades and a handful of pictures from my work at my desk. When I hit a really difficult day, I'd sift through that. While it couldn't erase an error or a loss, it boosted my spirits and helped get me back onto a productive track." While the idea was originally to have this Feel-Good File at work, she now has one at home too—brilliantly stowed in that usually-uninspiring-place, the laundry room—full of her running medals, photos of family and friends, meaningful letters and awards from work. She writes that taking a moment to look through this file helps her to "bolster my own spirit and keep myself from getting derailed."
