Was I Better Today?

Two questions that can change your life from Daniel Pink on Vimeo.

I recently watched this video by Daniel Pink. There were two questions. The first one asks what is your sentence. I guess it’s similar to what would you want people to say about you when you die. I have lots of thoughts on that but they’re too embryonic for public viewing. The second question resonated with me: “Am I better today than I was yesterday?”

My religious practice requires me to call myself to account each day, to think back on my day and judge it in terms of my beliefs AND to come up with strategies for improvement, ways of dealing with the same situation the next time that I encounter it.

So am I better today than yesterday? I think so. I hope so. I’m still on the learning curve to being able to say “I definitely am.”

Are you better today than yesterday? Please take the poll below. I’ll publish results in a week.
