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.
