2740 days is what we are given to pursue the things that matter to us. I began thinking about how I might translate this into something that I could use in daily mindfulness. I decided to buy a bunch of marbles to represent the days given to me then each day move one from the “remaining” pile into the “spent” pile.
I spent the end of last year thinking about the six principles in my good friend Luke Sniewki’s, Million Ways to Live: real food, movement, rest and relaxation, lifelong learning, community, and love. While on vacation, I took a separate day to think about each of these concepts.
Language exists for us to express our meaning and intent. Words have power and I placed these words on my door so that each time I leave home I am placed in a mindful state for my intentions for the day. It is precisely this mindful state and confidence of certainty that have allowed me to have amazing experiences conventional wisdom would have said were improbable.
