Engaging fully in the moment seems like it would take a great deal of energy.
But it is the things we do halfheartedly that really wear us down.

Life should not be a journey to the grave
with the intention of arriving safely
in a pretty and well preserved body,
but rather to skid in broadside,
in a cloud of smoke,
thoroughly used up,
totally worn out,
and loudly proclaiming,
“Wow! What a Ride!”

Today you have a fun task to accomplish: Today.
I want each item on your “to-do” list to get your best, most focused attention. Make every conversation count and every chore a dance of accomplishment. Let’s see if you can, for just one day, make this day the most important day of your life (By the way, today IS the most important day of your life!)
On your mark, get set…..
