Three Important Things You Need to Do Tonight

Some people work late into the evening and others come home and drop in front of a TV set. Either way, most aren’t getting any closer to their greatest goals in life. If that describes you, it’s time to shake things up. Here’s 3 things I recommend you do tonight:

1) Invite someone intelligent over for dinner.   In Victorian England, dinner conversation was highly valued. They didn’t just talk about what happened at work, or complain about their situation. They asked big questions like: “Is art important for people’s lives?” “What books have you been reading?” “What’s the state of education today?” The point is, when was the last time you discussed big questions with someone smarter or more experienced than you?  Start tonight.

2) Plan tomorrow.   Stop rushing into each day without a plan. All it takes is 15 minutes to review what happened today, and plan how to accomplish more tomorrow. Review your life goals, your monthly goals, and your daily goals. Are you moving in the right direction? Starting tonight, create a plan.

3) Release today.   Most of us lay awake into the night remembering slights, rude encounters, or hurt feelings. Let it go. Hanging on to bitterness or anger only poisons your sleep. It’s no surprise that the digital age is also the era of insomnia. Let go of the past so you can embrace the future. Starting tonight, before you hit the bed, forgive anyone who wronged you, and say a little prayer for them. You’ll be surprised how well you’ll sleep.

  1. Discussion at all meals (except breakfast) is important. People who visited us could be surprised at the topics… theology, world events, cross cultural communication, theatre, art, diet and additives, mathematical models and most commonly word meanings, which might include getting out the Oxford and Webster dictionaries to compare English and American use of words. I suppose I should mention we are English and have lived in the USA and now live at the eastern end of the Mediterranean.

  2. It is all so simple.If people would understand all the steps are written for you to follow.You just have to know where to look to find them. THE LORD’S PRAYER
