I recently did a speech and before I went on stage I asked the event planner about the keynote speaker they’d hired the previous year. “He’s a retired US Army colonel,” She said, “And the one thing I remember him saying was, ‘always make your bed.’“ I’ve thought about that a lot since then and it’s actually pretty solid advice. It’s amazing how that one simple ritual can put us on a positive path for the rest of the day. How about you? Do you make your bed every morning? Let’s talk about why this works and how you can apply it to other areas of your life as well. Be sure to post your questions and comments, I always reply to them personally.
