Start your day saying this and see what happens: “This is the best day of my life”.

By Åsa Nilsson | Jan 19, 2024

I am recording from an important chair this week, my brother in law Jay’s. I feel him with me as I speak to you. I know what he wants me to say. 

He wants you to heed the message… don’t wait to live your life. Don’t wait for retirement to make plans. Live today, carpe punctum. 

To be a true CEO of your own life, you need to surround yourself with good people, help one another, listen more than you speak, ask questions, stay curious, stay open, be patient and allow life to unfold in front of you. 

And …. don’t wait.
