6 Ways to Improve Your Life Before Saturday
—Lauren Sybert, Chicago
Dear Lauren, For the next week, ask yourself once every few hours, "On the day I die, will I be glad I did the thing I'm doing now?" You're probably spending large chunks of time shopping for things you don't need, talking to people you don't like or worrying about things over which you have no control. Cut these things out, go to sleep earlier and arise refreshed to greet the dawn. Later you can tell me about it.
