You might think of an “Everyday I Must” list like a daily bucket list. Those little things that you don’t want to forget about in the busy-ness of life. The things you don’t ever want to take for granted.
I’ll give you my short list so you can see what it may look like…
Everyday I Must…
– Read a page (article, book, magazine)
– Write a paragraph (blog, journal, essay)
– Read a chapter of the bible
- For my wife & child
- For my friends & family
- For my enemies
– Smile at a stranger
– Spend 5 minutes in silent thought
You may have an entirely different list, but I encourage you to make one and keep it someplace noticeable – next to your computer monitor, on your car dashboard, on the frig, etc. I suggest not including work related things like checking emails as those are the sorts of things that usually “busy” us away from our more meaningful activities.
You may consider a “Every Week I Must” list if that makes more sense to you. Just keep it simple.
– Call your parents/grandparents
– Invite friends to dinner
– Color with your kids using only crayons
There’s no rules about this. It’s just meant to help us make each day fulfilling and meaningful.
