What are three things you can do right now to make today a "10"?
Do you have a scale on which you get to rate your day? This is a tool I began using nearly a decade ago. When I started, I had a lot of 3-4-5 days. Then as I began making a more conscious effort about benchmarking the quality of my work day ... The number began to grow bigger. I started noting more 5's and 6's. Then 7's and before long I was having 9's and occasionally ... AHA! a "10" day would indeed happen. Perfect!
Today, when I wish someone a happy birthday on LinkedIn or Facebook I almost always remember to wish them a PERFECT day or say "make it a 10!"
What makes for a "10"
1) commit to the belief that YOU decide the quality of your day. Live from within.
2) decide that nothing is permanent, nothing is pervasive; and 99.99% of everything else that unfolds with others has absolutely nothing to do with you personally.
3) realize that you have a choice to write a better story for your day. How will the story read? Are you deciding to write a comedy, a mystery, or a drama? Anyone of them is ok... Just know that the story comes from you not the other way around.
C'est la vie... This is life. Say YES to a beautiful mess. Let it be so.
Decide that on the way to perfect there's going to be a little chaos.
Sometimes more than other days.
So the day may not be perfect ... Isn't it worth shooting for each and every day? Decide on it. Live from within. Here's wishing you a 10!
