try this.

I challenge you to try this for three days. Just give it three days, but really treat every person you meet like they are going to die by midnight. This means every single person you come in contact with- a waitress, salesperson, that annoying family member or neighbor…the list goes on.

I came across this a while ago, while in college, and I tried it.  Not only did it change how I treated people immediately, but it changed my perspective about a lot of things.  When there’s a sense of urgency in your life, you think differently.  Little things that used to upset you suddenly don’t matter anymore.  You realize what is important.  I hope that this somewhat silly challenge is taken seriously by someone, and that it changes your life for a little more than just three days.  Just try it.

live a life you’re proud of.

A quote I love by F. Scott Fitzgerald.  “I hope you live a life you’re proud of.  If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”

Just a reminder to motivate you to be proud of what you do everyday, kind of like what Steve Jobs was talking about when he said something like “I wake up every morning and look in the mirror and ask myself if I die tomorrow, would I want to do what I’m about to do today?  Whenever the answer’s been no for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.”  

You’re in charge of your life.  If you’re continuing to do something you’re not proud of, change it.  Start over.  You’re strong enough, trust me.
