As you consider the coming weeks and months, I suggest two things:
(1) identify how to glean side benefits from the "inadvertents": actions large and small, particularly ones you would have done anyway (e.g. the added benefit of walking instead of driving to the bookstore); and
(2) measure the small things - the "incrementals" - every day to see if they are heading in the right direction (e.g. the small actions that will eventually lead to completion of a large project).
