What do you do for a quick self-esteem pick-me-up?

The easy answer is, "What you're good at," but if you need such a thing, you have no idea/faith in what you're supposed to be good at. (Or, even worse, that what you're "good" at is too trivially easy to be a skill/talent/je-ne-sais-quoi worth mentioning, after all, if you can do it, can't everyone?)

I'm another house-cleaner. It always feels very satisfying to put things in order, specifically, so I might reorganize a messy cabinet or do l*undry or, in extreme cases, rearrange the furniture. This may have to do with my perceived failures often involving succumbing to entropy or inertia in one way or another.

I also concur with those who suggest doing things you enjoy. Then you have succeeded in enjoying something, and that's as important a success as any I can think of.
