The magic in the slightest changes. Plus how to change the colors of your Google calendar :)

I just changed the color of my events on my Google calendar. And then magic happened. My mood lifted, and all of a sudden all of the events I was stressing over looked like fun; all of them! It seems so simple my events google calendar changing the color gmail calendar settings how to change colornow, but I had never considered changing the black on red- the events looked like my events google calendar changing the color pinkpunishments & I had to squint to even read what they said! Now the pretty dark pink with white text is beautifully inviting. The funny thing is, I change the colors of my client google calendars all of the time; just hadn’t thought in last- oh probably 3 years to change the red?

It amazes me how the slightest change (even google calendar colors!) can shift our perception and therefore our emotions and thoughts. This is not a new thought, and has been referenced by many great authors and behavioral scientists. But it’s always fun to notice the tiny things catalyze big impact 🙂

What should I post on my blog?

Obviously, it depends. But here are 3 suggestions to get good content flowing:

1. Original content. Linking/re-posting content created by others is usually encouraged, and is almost always allowable. However, publishing articles that aren’t posted anywhere else gives your post a huge advantage. It also works to establish yourself as an expert in your industry.

2. Answers to common questions. What to customers and friends ask you? When people find out what you do, what questions do people ask? For example, I have a friend who works as an auto-mechanic. When I want an honest opinion about something related to my car, I call him. Think about what your friends consider you to be an expert in, and start recording your answers on your blog!

3. Specific, instructional information. “How to change your own oil.” “How to check tire pressure.” To an auto-mechanic, these answers seem obvious. To many of the rest of us, this would be very useful information. check tire pressure
