#President Goodluck #Jonathan has taught Nigerians how to turn a bad day or bad situation into a great opportunity. He left some lessons that we all can learn from. Everybody is now praising him despite the fact that most Nigerians hated him before the election. President Jonathan is now a world renowned person because he was able to turn his bad day into a great day for himself.
Today was one of those days for me when I seem to have a negative level of energy. It was a day when I seem unable to achieve anything and as I watched the clock dance from morning to afternoon, I knew I was having a bad day because I had done practically nothing meaningful. Even the order for my book from Konga I had not even delivered.
Most of us have such days when you feeling like doing practically nothing. Fortunately though, I have discovered how to get significant value out of my bad day into a great day because I have been having a lot of these low days. Here are the things I do to make my bad day turn into a great day.
1. On a bad day, I listen to an inspiring message or seminar. Because my brain cannot generate ideas, I feed it with positive impulse that it can use when it gets out of its rut. For instance I listened to John Maxwell on youtube
2. I reach out to my family and friends to catch up on jist. I have come to realise that my bad days are the best time to gossip with friends who I have not talked to for a while
3. I get a bite useful in non work related activities like looking at the things on my desk to know those I need to trash
5. I read a book for three hours. Since it was a bad day that I could not seem to get much out of, I picked up a business book called SECURITY ANALYSIS written in 1946 and began to read it. I read for about 3 hours and I was amazed at what I discovered about investing from the book that I would not have come across if I was having a great day
Although I wasted my day because my brain seem to go into sleep mode by refusing to get me to do what I planned for the day, I made sure that I did not waste the day by putting things in motion to help me get something meaningful from a bad day.
Try to get something good out of a day you can see is turning into a bad day. I thing it would be wrong for you to fight a bad day because the law of diminishing returns will make you much more unproductive
