Today is your day.
Today you get to pick how you want to make a difference. You know the drill. Think of something—and go do it. Pretty simple.
There is only one catch—we want to hear about it. Let us know what you did and what resulted. We will be selecting one of your ideas to be one of the "Mondays" in our next book. So be creative, have fun, and make sure to let us know what you did to make today matter.
Every time you took care of yourself, did something for someone else, protected the environment, gave from your heart, volunteered your time, and donated your possessions, your action had a ripple effect on your friends, neighbors, co-workers, community, city, country, and the world.
We are confident that you had an amazingly gratifying year and that you know in your heart that you really did make a difference. Every smile, every thank you, and every gesture of appreciation confirmed this for you.
Yet the work has just begun. It's a big world out there. Now you understand just how much YOU MATTER.
