Make Today Ridiculously Amazing
Three years ago, I was reading an interview with Sean Stephenson in Success Magazine and he talked about creating a ‘When Life Works List.’ Basically, it’s creating a list of things in your life that on any given day, if you’re able to complete 5 to 7 of them, life works out.
Gratitude Tip: It’s not about having perfect days, rather it’s about making the most of every day we are given. Creating a list of simple things that bring you joy may make it easier to have more days where everything just seems to work out for the best.
After reading the article, I created my list and It’s been on my fridge and beside my mirror since then. When searching for the file this morning. I was surprised that I had written it three years ago. Even more surprising, I would not change a thing on this list. Today, I encourage you to find 10 – 15 minutes to create your own list. It doesn’t have to be fancy or typed up. Mine is a powerpoint slide with a fun design, saved as a jpg.
Here are a few things to think about as you create your list of 12 – 14 items:
- What brings me joy?
- Who do I enjoy spending time with?
- When do I feel most at peace?
- How do I relieve stress?
- What is my favorite daily habit?
- When I am inspired?
I’d love to see your list, if you’re open to sharing it. You can post it on my Facebook page or simply write it in the comments. Make sure you post a few copies around your home, to remind you every day of how simple it is to make every day a GREAT day!
