Dale Carnegie on Fatigue

As a graduate of the Dale Carnegie course (generously paid for by my employer), I am apparently permanently signed up for the "Carnegie Success Connection Tip of the Week" newsletter. It is normally some pretty insightful stuff, even if a lot of it is mostly common sense. This week's installment is below:
“Our fatigue is often caused not by work, but by worry, frustration and resentment.”
-- Dale Carnegie
Often fatigue at the end of a work day cannot be attributed simply to the hard work we've done. Our own negative reactions to the stressful, daily grind drain our energy and stifle our potential for success.

Here are a few tips on how to relieve some personal frustrations so as to increase productivity without resentment:
  • Fill your mind with thoughts of peace, courage, health and hope
  • Count your blessings instead of your troubles
  • Cooperate with that which is inevitable
