What do you do everyday that is meaningful to you?

Sometime we only realize that things are (or were) meaningful when we can’t do them anymore. When those things are taken away from us due to illness, injury or circumstance.

They may be simple things like being able to shop and cook for your family or having great conversations with people you respect and care about or even going to work.

Imagine your life without those components in them.  Do you feel a void?

If so, this week I encourage you to pay special attention to the things that are meaningful to you.

The mundane, the repetitive and yes sometimes even the annoying can become a little special when you realize that your life would not be the same without them there.

Notice what is meaningful to you and savour it, appreciate it, enjoy it. Then figure out one way to get more meaningful things into your life.


This week on Your Life, Unlimited radio, Glen Daman, author of Master Your Life to the 10th Degree  and 78 year old powerhouse David Dworkski, Ph.D.  joined me on CJOB to share some of their tips for living, laughing and loving your way to sustainable success.

Glen says if you spend the first 60 minutes of your day working on yourself, everything else in your life with improve and he compared working on your significant relationship with brushing your teeth, “You only have to brush the ones you want to keep.”  Now there’s a visual!

David spoke about working in collaboration rather than isolation and shared some secrets of how he keeps his vitality in his senior years. He credits curiosity for helping him stay sharp. I want to be like this guy when I grow up!
