A lot of us have been attending high school and college graduations lately and I wanted to share a profound experience I had at one the other day.
The speaker broke down a really complicated topic – How to have a great life – and made it at simple as this.
A great life starts out by having a great day. A bunch of great days make for a great week. A few great weeks make a great month. A series of great months makes for a great year and a string of great years make for a great life.
The next day at work I was feeling a bit sorry for myself. The simple reflection on making it a great day instantly changed my perspective. I am 55 years old and a high school graduation talk may have changed me. Now I’m not certain this wisdom will have the same effect on you, but my guess is you and I are a lot a like.
I’m typically a positive, glass is half full guy. But this simple wisdom made my perspective of the glass as 3/4 full.
The secret to a great life is right there in front of us. In the choices we make in the next moment, hour, days and weeks. No need to overcomplicate it. Just start now.
