A significant emotional event is waiting to happen… today.
Do you remember what you were doing on this date last year? Or on this date in 2010? Probably not. I hardly remember what I had for breakfast last week. So, what would make today so memorable?
Today could be the day you start doing that thing you’ve been meaning to do. And you could do it every day for the rest of your life, making today the most monumental and important day of your life!
The trick is to treat every day as if it were the most important day of your life. You need to approach the mid season go-through-the-motions practice as if it were the do-or-die Championship game of your Senior season. You need to knock that next door as if it’s the most lucrative customer in the world living there. You need to live like it’s now or never.
No days are special if you make every day important. Then when it finally comes to that Championship game, it’s just another day of doing what you do. It’s just another day of personal excellence.
