Making the best of a bad situation

And thus ends the 16 hour travel day from Austin to Toronto, with a 6 hour delay in Houston. Definitely not as smooth as the flight down through Chicago...I can only hope that the streak of crazy Sunday airplane stories doesn't continue next weekend.

But you have to make the best of a bad situation.

And it helps when you are prepared. I had plenty to do. I had the right snacks (2 apples and trail mix).

And I had the right attitude.

So make sure, that no matter how bad things get this week, that you...

1) Make the best of a bad situation - so that you still make progress no matter who conspires against you
2) That you are prepared for the worst - so identify the obstacles in your life and come up with 2 solutions for each
3) That you always keep the right attitude...and never, ever, EVER give up.

By the in flight entertainment was:

a) the latest Wired magazine (okay, nothing special)
b) The movie,  Date Night - I lasted 5 minutes
c) The movie, Green Zone - I lasted 10 minutes
d) The movie, Lost in Translation - I watched it all. It was okay.
e) A lightening storm. On both sides of the plane. While we landed. But surprisingly, it wasn't at all bumpy on the way down. But still impressive to watch.

Alright, stay strong, and have a great day,
