Make Today a Great Day

by Mark on February 23, 2010 · 2 comments

In yesterday’s post, I said that Today is the Most Important Day of Your Life! If today is so important, it makes sense to strive to make it a great day. What makes a day a great day? I suppose that we all might have different ideas about what makes a day great, but in my opinion, a day is great if you balance enjoying the moment with somehow making an investment for the future.

What are some ways you can make today a great day?

Some ideas that come to mind:

  • Get some rest.
  • Get some exercise.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Eat well.
  • Do something that you have been procrastinating on.
  • Review, rehearse, and enjoy your goals, or set new ones.
  • Take action on your goals.
  • Laugh and have some fun.
  • Dream.
  • Think.
  • Learn something new.
  • Disconnect from the world and relax.
  • Read.
  • Play with your kids and really have fun with them.
  • Play with your pets and really have fun with them.
  • Try something you have never tried before.
  • Update your financial plan, or create one.

These are just a few ideas that might help make your day great. You will notice that some of these ideas increase our enjoyment in the present, and others are an investment in the future. Some are both. None of these ideas are groundbreaking, but sometimes the simple things are exactly what we need to make us happy. Sometimes we need to remind ourselves to practice the fundamentals instead of getting caught up in our busy lives.

What other ideas do you have for making today a great today?
