Well, it’s probably your first day back in the office for 2013. But what if you’re ALREADY in a bad mood? How do you snap out of it? Tim Sanders offers some suggestions: 1.  Admit it.  You’re in a bad mood.  Tell someone.  Your assistant.  Your spouse.  A co-worker.  A fair warning serves two purposes: it gives a heads-up to people, and serves to give you a reminder that you need to get it under control before it ruins your day. 2.  Try to figure out WHY you’re in a bad mood.  Something set you off.  Bad sleep?  A fight with your spouse/kids?  A problem at work that you need to deal with?  An upcoming meeting or confrontation?  Identifying why you’re upset will help you put things in perspective. 3.  Take a few minutes to connect with someone close to you.  Take some time out and talk with someone who can usually put you in a better mood.  It will help you re-set 4.  Eat something.  Healthy.  Some tea or a healthy snack can help, believe it or not. 5.  Focus.  On Mission.  Try to put out of your mind what has you all whacked out of shape, and get back to your mission and purpose.  Grab your church mission statement and read it.  Pray through it.  Then start working on a task (even if it wasn’t on your agenda) that will move that purpose forward. Those are some of Tim’s suggestions.  What are yours? How do you get yourself out of a bad mood?

Controversy
The basic prayer package covers one hour of prayer cover per week for just $150 a month.  The deluxe package includes two hours of prayer cover per day for $1000/mo. I guess that’s a steal for only $16 an hour. Here’s how it works, according to The Prayer Company’s website:
When you sign up with The Prayer Company you choose which areas you want us to concentrate on in prayer: Business, Ministry, Family and Marriage. Then for as many hours per week as you choose, we diligently and determinedly pray through these areas according to your requests and what we hear from the Heart of God as we approach the Throne of Heaven on your behalf! We provide a detailed outline of what we pray into each area, plus we give you a personal prayer contact to share your requests and feedback with.
Huh. Please take a moment to leave a comment… Thanks, Todd (Thanks to Bill Reichart for the heads up on this one!)

Leadership
Mark Beeson answers this question with a few thoughts you might find interesting and helpful as you plan your week today… Worry hurts you. Prayer inspires you. Planning prepares you. Worry is natural. Prayer is supernatural. Planning intertwines the natural (the world as it is) with the supernatural (the world as it could be and should be). Worry drains you. Prayer fills you. Planning fulfills you. Worry isolates you. Prayer connects you. Planning integrates you. Worry shrinks your vision. Prayer expands your vision. Planning enables your vision to come true. Marks has a couple of other interesting thoughts on Worry, Prayer, and Planning here. So… what will it be for you today?  Worry?  Prayer?  Planning? Take a moment to share your thoughts below… Have a great day! Todd
