"At the end of the game, the pawn and the king go back in the same box" -- Italian Proverb

How to be Smarter: Even when the day just seems average, or maybe even a little bad, I like to remind myself that the next email, or phone call, or encounter I have, could come with the best news ever. We all can be perpetually on the edge of the best day of our life, and not even know it. How to be Prettier: When giving a speech, put a smiley face in the upper corner of each notecard to remind yourself to smile while you talk.

How to be (less) Awkward: I always think you should go where people want you. If you are at a party, and no one in the circle you are standing in seems interested in hearing what you have to say, move to another circle. Same goes for jobs and relationships.
