Today's kick-butt mindset tip:

Try something new today. A new food. A new route home from work. A new exercise. A new perspective on an old problem. A new attitude to a longtime
annoyance. Something new.Then repeat tomorrow with something else.

PS - Random quote I found in Rotman's business magazine over the weekend...

"It is a little known fact that adults actually learn language faster and more effectively than children. Most adults don't believe this to be true, which creates a negative, self-fulfilling prophecy. Recognizing that you can learn anything you want to is the most powerful knowledge out there." - Michael
Gelb, author of 'Discover Your Genius'
