Curt, At my previous job, on my monitor I had taped about 5-6 fortunes from fortune cookies on my monitor.

Occasionally my mind wandered into "what am I still doing here?" territory, I would look at the words of advice or encouragement that were there.

I don't have them in front of me now, but they were things along the lines of, "you will take a risk and be rewarded" or "a great opportunity will present itself soon" or "you have earned an important persons respect".

Even on days were I became depressed, they would offer a diversions and make me realize that good stuff was still happening in my life, and I could think about the fact that I should probably make something of the opportunities and not be afraid of taking risks, and I would think about having lunch or being around people who seemed to respect me.

Perhaps they worked like daily affirmations for me, but eventually, I had dinner with somebody who I guess respected me, he told me he wanted to know if I wanted to get involved in starting up a venture with him, and I found it hard to resist. I'd never been a big risk taker previously, and when people would hear me tell them about what I was doing, they'd say, "Wow!", and I'd say, "I can't really explain it. I even surprised myself".

I took the fortunes with me and laminated them into a little card that sits near my desk in my new office.

Golden Dragon Fortune Cookies in Chicago.

Excellent taste, but much more important, the best fortunes (in both quality and quantity) I have ever encountered. They supply a significant number of Chicago area restaurants; when you're in the area, you're likely to run across them.
