Recently I had the pleasure of giving a talk at First Tuesday, an outstanding service organization for women run by my good friend and colleague Marcy Cole. The talk was about how to overcome negativity. In a spirited 45min, I shared with the audience practical tools that take anyone’s state from ‘blah’ to ‘yeehah’ in mere seconds, including:
- The ‘Yes’ technique
- The pen technique
- The FRC protocol (Feel-Rise-Choose)
- The color-water-shape-number technique <– deadly effective!
- Supremely corny jokes sure to lift your spirits (unless you’re a guy, ahem)
- And precisely one wagonload more

Be sure to comment here and let me know how they work for you. Here in the lab, we can use all the feedback we can get…
