This weekend’s read is by Robert D. Smith on questions to ask yourself to help you live everyday like it’s your last.

The manner in which you begin your day determines how well you live it. To live each day to its true potential, you must begin the day with intention. These seven questions are the perfect tools for infusing purpose into each precious day you are given.

  1. Whose life am I going to brighten today?
  2. What three things am I most grateful for today?
  3. What memories am I going to create today?
  4. What challenge am I going to overcome today?
  5. What value am I going to create today?
  6. How much joy can I create for others and myself today?
  7. What life changing decision(s) am I going to make today?

Check out the complete post for explanations to each of these questions.
