A Day You Can’t Afford to Miss (But You Can Be Late)
We caught the Sergeant Bilko movie recently. There was a quote we loved.
Rita Robbins (played by Glenne Headley) thinks her relationship with Master Sergeant Ernest G. Bilko (Steve Martin) is over.
Bilko’s archnemesis, Major Colin Thorn (Phil Hartman) is wooing her.
But she still has feelings for Bilko. She is reminiscing when she says something like this:
“It was always so exciting with Ernie. Every day was ‘Anything Can Happen Day.”
Every day. Not just Wednesdays, like on The Mickey Mouse Club Show.
It got us thinking. Not about having an Anything Can Happen Day every day.
Structure helps you reach BIGG success. Routines are important.
But a routine can easily turn into a rut. And there’s a fine line between truly living and living dead.
So we vow to start having an Anything Can Happen Day now and then. Maybe once a quarter. We’re going to plan for it next year.
And that’s as far as the planning will go. Because anything more would lead to less.
We want to start the day with a blank page. Absolutely nothing on the agenda. A day to do whatever we want.
A day to be spontaneous. When’s the last time you were spontaneous?
You know you’re too busy if you don’t ever have time to be spontaneous. And we’ve been too busy.
So we’re going to do it. We’re going to schedule four Anything Can Happen Days into next year.
That’s less than 1% of the days next year. Surely, we can let life flow that much of the time.
Anything Can Happen Day. It’s a great way to get out of a rut. Or just shake things up a bit.
You can’t afford to miss it. But you can be late for it!
When’s the last time you had an Anything Can Happen Day?
