How was your day? You probably get asked this at least once a day by a friend or family member.
The answers I used to give was “oh it was okay” or “not too bad”. Which is the canned response that most people give, but it’s not very inspiring.
Then about 10 years ago I would answer things like great, terrific, awesome and spectacular. Which is what I still do most of the time. This sets a more positive tone for the day for both you and the person who asked the question.
Then about six months ago, I started assessing my day at the end of the day. I ask myself the following questions:
Did I finish my most important task for the day?
If not, what blocked me from completing it?
Did I live life in the moment?
Was I present in my conversations?
Did I do something to change someone’s life for the better?
What am I grateful for?
What did I do good today?
What could I have done better?
After answering these questions, I can truly evaluate how my day went.
I have a few close friends, who ask me how my day went that I give the true answer to. I will say things like:
“The day was amazing! I finished my most important task for the day, had some terrific conversations and feel like I actually made a difference in the world.”
Or if I struggled a bit for the day I might say:
“I did have a few challenges today. I was stuck in my head and not really living in the moment. I let distractions get the best of me and did not complete my most important task for the day.”
These honest answers help me celebrate my wins and learn from my struggles.
I used to give my true answers to everyone, but they just looked at me like I was from another planet and quickly changed the subject. My close friends listen to what I have to say and give me some positive feedback.
I encourage you to give this a try. It will bring more clarity into your life.
