    The beating will continue until moral improves.

    I also look at everything that happens to me as a learning experience. If it's something bad, I try to analyze; why did this happen, what could I do different, etc.

                  If I have a bad day, its usually from making a stupid mistake.

                  -taking a job I didn't want.

                  -doing something half-assed from laziness and then doing it over.

                  -letting a jerk customer bother me instead of pulling a 'Dunbar' and driving away, burning rubber.

                  So my motivational saying is always...."I'll NEVER do that again, tomorrow's another day!"
