When I read THE Robert D’s book, I realized it was the perfect way to start a new year. It’s packed with practical steps to make the most of your days. It’s a fast read, but one that will linger with you as you contemplate your life.
Let’s start with the title. 20,000 Days and Counting. That grabbed my attention as I wondered about the significance of 20,000 days. Turns out that you realized in 2009 that you had been alive for almost 20,000 days. That realization had a big impact on you, didn’t it?
I would say the impact was huge. When you see your number, it really gives you a sense of urgency and intensity.
2. I love to invent reasons to celebrate. My wife and I celebrate more dates than anyone, and I even invent anniversaries and holidays just so we can celebrate something. So, I was thrilled to see you talking about celebrating in this book. Why is celebrating so important? How do you make it a part of your daily life?
Celebrating is critical because it’s the only way to withstand living a life of intensity and purpose. If you’re living each and every day with meaning and intentional action to fulfill your purpose, you’re going to be drained from time to time. Allowing yourself time to celebrate the little accomplishments along the way will keep you focused and help you avoid burnout.
3. From what I read, you seem to love the word “no.” Why is “no” such a power word?
