Ask yourself the following :- What can I bring to the project?
Who am I? How can I engage in this task as a meaningful expression of myself?

2) Make Tedious Tasks Beautiful - Make tasks you dread beautiful by lighting your favorite candle, smelling your favorite fragrance or even sipping on a calming tea.
