Be nice until 10 a.m.

John Maxwell asserts that we need to make right decisions early, and manage those decisions daily. He says maintaining the right attitude is easier than regaining the right attitude.

In The Difference Maker: Making Your Attitude Your Greatest Asset, he offers these thoughts from a Chinese proverb:

“Assume a cheerfulness you do not feel, and shortly you feel the cheerfulness you assumed.”

Or as editor and publisher Elbert Hubbard says, “Be pleasant until 10 a.m. and the rest of the day will take care of itself.”
