The best year of our lives is made up of a succession of best days.  But most of us will forget today by the time tomorrow comes.  For a day to have enough impact that we'll actually remember it in a year's time, we must consciously intend to make it memorable.  We have to travel outside our normal comfort zones and purposefully create an emotional charge that's trong enough to remember.

What activity could you plan for one day this week that would be so special that you'll remember it for the rest of your life?

Your Assignment:

Pick one day this week when your schedule allows for some unstructured time.  Now ask yourself, "If I were going to seize this day and live it with such passion that I'm sure to remember it in a year's time what would I do?"

Here are some ideas to get your imagination rolling:

  • You could fill your best friend's house with flowers.
  • You could surprise someone you love with a home-cooked meal.
  • You could find out about a household project that a friend or family member has been putting off and organize a work party to get it done.
Think creatively, and do something that will leave a lasting impression in the hearts of all who participate.

Seize the day!
