I came across this interesting blog post about how a man used his computer password to change his mindset and overcome the depression caused by his divorce. The idea is quite simple- make your password an affirmation. If your computer requires you to re-enter your password whenever it goes to sleep this little trick could have you reiterating this affirmation multiple times a day. That can add up to powerful stuff. My workplace requires passwords to be reset every couple of months for security reasons and of course we can’t use passwords we’ve used before, so instead of getting frustrated by the demands of the machine I’m now going to use my password to help me focus and achieve my goals, one at a time.
