But to make the most of this day, choose one big thing on your list and do it first. If you finish, move on to the next. Do one thing that you love. Apart from the day-to-day requirements of living life, you have dreams, goals, and hopes. You have hobbies that you love and activities that breathe life into who you are. Embrace these life-giving opportunities.
And do one thing every day that you love. Rest effectively. Rest is as essential to our bodies as food and water and air. Our bodies need to be refreshed on a daily basis and a weekly basis. Be present with others. Put away distractions. Engage in conversation. Ask questions. Give time for answers. And look people in the eye when you do. Their eyes reveal far more than their words. Give to someone else. Your fullest joy in life will not be found living it selfishly for yourself.
Rather, the periods of greatest joy and fulfillment are found in the moments and motivations when we are choosing to give to others. Invest your life in someone else everyday. Mentor a child. Help a co-worker. Fund a local charity. Or just make that phone call to a friend who needs to hear from you. Our lives are more than flesh and blood.
They are also mind and heart and soul. Find time each day to feed your soul by embracing gratitude, laughter, hope, and faith. Tomorrow is another day with great potential and opportunity.
Take 10 minutes each evening to clear the clutter and refresh your home for the next day. Today is among the greatest gifts we have ever been given. Follow on Twitter Like on Facebook. Thank-you for this simple list this week Joshua , we need these simple reminders to keep our eyes open to the traps and routines we can fall into.
I have had two recent deaths at far too young of ages in my family this last month and I am done with trying to do too much in too little of time.
Additionally a lot of what I do involves social media and the constant engagement is taxing me. I need to find a way to manage it and not let it control me. Lastly, thank-you for your part in the Minimalist film, I watched it two nights ago and enjoyed it.

MY urge to purge is even stronger now. Decorating for Christmas with only things I love. Only keeping what i love also. Time to let go…in sooo many ways. I am having trouble dealing with people who are stuck in old ways of spend and shop regardless of how much they already have and how far in debt they are.
They have no interest in this, just not ready I guess. Imagine if everyone followed these 10 steps daily…. We would live in a much happier world.

Thank you for your wisdom. For me going to the gym and doing a bit of cardio and a bit of serious weight lifting works miricles for stress, anxiety and depression. It kind of resets the brain chemistry, which is very much affected by stress. Number 1 , rising early, is something I introduced into my life some years ago and it is no exaggeration to say it transformed my life in so many ways and on so many different levels. Habits are such an important contributor to a fulfilling life. Very well written post, thanks for sharing this.
I will definitely follow this from today onwards.

God has sent us for a specific purpose, but I think I delay the things by procrastinating. If we take each day as it comes with a definitive routine, life will be much more simpler and organised. I especially liked point no. Those few minutes give immense Joy. No 7- In this digital world, where we have connectivity with many people at the same time. It becomes difficult to be present with one person at a time. I will surely be present for them now on.
All the points mentioned above are the ones which we already know in some form. But the way it is described above is a very good read and to act upon with immediate effect. In reference to number seven- I am switching to a basic flip phone and will not use Internet no email or facebook from my phone at all. I am addicted to my iPhone so this is my attempt to be present with others. Wish me luck! This list is so perfect for me to read today.

Good overall, but think it might be better for someone younger than this. Having always liked John Chapman's clear style, I was very happy to find out about this book, written especially for older folks who have not encountered Jesus before. Not so much about life now, but how to use what you have left to ensure you are with Jesus for eternity. He uses bible passages to clearly explain the gospel message and its urgent message. I also share it with my friends.
Thank You. But i afraid to face in my life.
