What will you do today that will matter tomorrow?

In this world of ours,
that which matters most
is not what happens to the outside of things,
but what happens to the inside of people.

Do you have lots of STUFF on your plate right now? Work stuff, school stuff (already!), community service stuff, life stuff?
Many of us feel as though there are so many things on our “to do” lists that we hardly know where to start. My suggestion for this week is to start with a “mattering” test. Which item on your “to do” list could have the biggest positive impact on tomorrow? Is there an action you could take that if you do it WELL and you do it NOW, it could make tomorrow better for you and/or others around you?
Start with that action, and see if that helps create some momentum that will make even more MATTERING possible!
Have a good week, and remember that next Monday is a holiday so look for Ripples first thing on Tuesday morning, September 5.
