5 Star Wars Quotes You Should Stick On Your Office Desk

5 Star Wars Quotes You Should Stick On Your Office Desk

Are you the Star Wars fan? Not yet? How come? All your colleagues in the office must have already tired you with constant talks about Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Everyone around you seems to be mad about Star Wars storyline and characters. Everyone except you.

Well, of course, there’s no reason to argue that Star Wars is a cult film with amazingly cool and memorable scenes. Even though you didn’t watch any of Star Wars episodes, you’re not a part of a huge fanbase, you don’t buy Star Wars souvenirs and have a lightsaber, you obviously know how Master Yoda talks.

Nevertheless, it doesn’t really matter if you are a Star Wars lover or hater, the quotes we’d like to provide you with, are just cool. They are true to life, and to prove it I’ll also describe situations, when they are going to be relevant. Check them all and suggest your colleagues using them in order to make your daily routine in the office a bit more amusing.

1. “No. I am your Father.”

Darth Vader

Stay your ground. As an example, you’re working with some freelance writers hired to create content for your company. They’ve sent you articles, which are quite not what you expected. You email them, “Dear freelance writer, there’s an issue. The article is not what we need, so could you please rewrite it.” The answer you receive is the following, “Well, can we leave it as it is, cause I don’t have much time for rewrites.” Reply with “No. I am your Father” and consider the problem solved.

2. “There’s always a bigger fish.”

Qui-Gon Jinn

Wait for your perfect time. Imagine your boss trying to decide who’s going to manage a new cool project. Everyone in the office is hoping to be the one, you’re hoping to be lucky enough to succeed getting this position. However, your expectations are defeated and ambitions are thwarted – your boss chooses your colleague to hold a position of the project manager. What a fail! But don’t get out of tune at once. Just think this way: It’s not the last project. There’s no reason to be upset, because “there’s always a bigger fish”. Who knows, maybe in a month you’re going to become a manager of the much more cool project.

3. “Try not. Do. Or do not. There is no try.”

Yoda

Develop you to-do attitude. I’m sure you can make up a thousand of good excuses for your procrastination. And two thousands of excuses why you failed to achieve your work goals. But it isn’t any good. Work is work, and you are to do your best to achieve success.

If you feel there’s something wrong with your time-management or organizational skills and you cannot work in a productive way, you’d better make use of tools that ex-procrastinators advise. They help staying self-disciplined and efficient. For example, e.ggtimer is an easy-to-use online timer helping to stay focused while working. Or the other tool is DayViewer, which lets you stay up-to-date with all important issues.

4. “Who’s the more foolish; the fool, or the fool who follows him?”

Obi-Wan Kenobi

Be able to see your own mistakes and mistakes of your colleagues. Sometimes it happens that your boss has chosen a wrong strategy. You’re trying to bring this plan to life, however, you realize that’s something wrong. The chosen strategy is not the best and you all see how it fails. Isn’t it time to recollect the quote “Who’s the more foolish; the fool, or the fool who follows him?” I don’t mean that you or your boss are idiots. We all make mistakes. But the earlier you detect the mistake and say about it, the better progress your project or company will have.

5. “GGWWWRGHH.”

Chewbacca
It’s a perfect quote for any situation in the office. Have you missed a deadline? Are you late for work? Do you disagree with what your boss is saying? Do you want to get promoted? Reply with “GGWWWRGHH” and let your boss and colleagues just deal with it.

That’s it. 5 Star Wars quotes are already at hand. Now you know a bit more about Star Wars. And know how to make your colleagues smile. Isn’t it amazing?

30 Small Habits To Lead A More Peaceful Life

30 Small Habits To Lead A More Peaceful Life

In today’s world, true peace must come from within us and our own actions. Here are 30 small things you can do on a regular basis to increase your overall sense of harmony, peace, and well-being:

1. Don’t go to every fight you’re invited to

Particularly when you’re around those who thrive on chaos, be willing to decline the invitation to join in on the drama.

2. Focus on your breath

Throughout the day, stop to take a few deep breaths. Keep stress at bay with techniques such as “square breathing.” Breathe in for four counts, hold for four counts, then out for four counts, and hold again for four counts. Repeat this cycle four times.

3. Get organized and purge old items

A cluttered space often creates a cluttered spirit. Take the time to get rid of anything you haven’t used in a year and invest in organizational systems that help you sustain a level of neatness.

4. Stop yourself from being judgmental

Whenever you are tempted to have an opinion about someone else’s life, check your intentions. Judging others creates and promotes negative energy.

5. Say ‘thank you’ early and often

Start and end each day with an attitude of gratitude. Look for opportunities in your daily routine and interactions to express appreciation.

6. Smile more

Even if you have to “fake it until you make it,” there are many scientific benefits of smiling and laughing. Also, pay attention to your facial expression when you are doing neutral activities such as driving and walking. Turn that frown upside down!

7. Don’t worry about the future

As difficult as this sounds, there is a direct connection between staying in the present and living a more peaceful life. You cannot control the future. As the old proverb goes, “Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it won’t get you anywhere.” Practice gently bringing your thoughts back to the present.

8. Eat real food

The closer the food is to the state from which it came from the earth, the better you will feel in eating it. Choose foods that grew from a plant over food that was made in a plant.

9. Choose being happy over being right

Too often, we sacrifice inner peace in order to make a point. It’s rarely worth it.

10. Keep technology out of the bedroom

Many studies, such as one conducted by Brigham and Women’s Hospital, have connected blue light of electronic devices before bed to adverse sleep and overall health. To make matters worse, many people report that they cannot resist checking email and social media when their cell phone is in reach of their bed, regardless of the time.

11. Make use of filtering features on social media

You may not want to “unfriend” someone completely, however you can choose whether you want to follow their posts and/or the sources of information that they share.

12. Get comfortable with silence

When you picture someone who is the ultimate state of peace, typically they aren’t talking.

13. Listen to understand, not to respond

So often in conversations, we use our ears to give us cues about when it is our turn to say what we want to say. Practice active listening, ask questions, process, then speak.

14. Put your troubles in a bubble

Whenever you start to feel anxious, visualize the situation being wrapped in a bubble and then picture that sphere floating away.

15. Speak more slowly

Often a lack of peace manifests itself in fast or clipped speech. Take a breath, slow down, and let your thoughtful consideration drive your words.

16. Don’t procrastinate

Nothing adds stress to our lives like waiting until the last minute.

17. Buy a coloring book

Mandala coloring books for adults are becoming more popular because of their connection to creating inner peace.

18. Prioritize yourself

You are the only person who you are guaranteed to live with 24 hours a day for the rest of your life.

19. Forgive others

Holding a grudge is hurting you exponentially more than anyone else. Let it go.

20. Check your expectations

Presumption often leads to drama. Remember the old saying, “Expectations are premeditated resentments.”

21. Engage in active play

Let your inner child come out and have some fun. Jump, dance, play, and pretend!

22. Stop criticizing yourself

The world is a hard enough place with more than enough critics. Your life is not served well by being one of them.

23. Focus your energy and attention on what you want

Thoughts, words, and actions all create energy. Energy attracts like energy. Put out what you want to get back.

24. Assign yourself “complaint free” days.

Make a conscious decision not to complain about anything for a whole day. It might be harder than you think and the awareness will stick with you.

25. Surround yourself with people you truly enjoy being in the company of

Personalities tend to be contagious, and not everyone’s is worth catching. Be judicious in your choices.

26. Manage your money

Financial concerns rank top on the list of what causes people stress. Take the time each month to do a budget, calculate what you actually spend and sanity check that against the money you have coming in.

27. Stop trying to control everything

Not only is your inner control freak sabotaging your sense of peace, it is also likely getting in the way of external relationships as well.

28. Practice affirmations

Repeat positive phrases that depict the life and qualities you want to attract. It may not come naturally to you, but it works.

29. Get up before sunrise

Personally witnessing the dawn brings a unique sense of awe and appreciation for life.

30. Be yourself

Nothing creates more inner discord than trying to be something other than who we really are. Authenticity breeds happiness.
