What good can come from this?

Next week I will start to refresh my life and you can still join me. You won’t have to refresh my life, you can do yours and it is completely free!

For those of you who don’t want to wait another week; let’s get started right now with a small warm-up exercise:

Benjamin Franklin

Benjamin Franklin was a busy man. According to Wikipedia he was.. “a leading author, printer, political theorist, politician, postmaster, scientist, inventor, civic activist, statesman, and diplomat.”

Apart from that apparently he also was generous, loveable and kind. But that is probably history speaking and not his friends.

To propel his productivity to polymath mammut levels, he followed a strict schedule. I don’t want you to follow his schedule, but I would like to do some cherry picking from his routine. Every day Franklin asked himself two questions. In the morning he would ask:

What good shall I do today?

And in the evening he would look back and ask:

What good have I done today?

What good can come from this

I really like those questions. They can help you to keep focussed on what is important to you.

Let’s take these two questions and try that for ourselves. You can do it for a day, a week or for the rest of your life. I would suggest to aim for small things. Rather do a tiny good, then to fail at healing the planet in a day. Try it and find out what it brings you.

I will try it myself at least until next week. I will let you know how that pans out.

And a few more notes on Refresh Your Life

Some of you asked me if you can join when you have a holiday planned during these 7 weeks. Of course you can! Most of the assignments you can do on your holiday destination or you can postpone them to when it suits you better.

“We need a hashtag”
Allright, since I came up with the dreadful long title “Join me to refresh your life. For free!” the hashtag could be #JMTRYLFF. But I could never remember that, so can we settle on #RYLFF ;
Refresh your life for free? #RYL would be better, but that seems to be some stock and I am not buying it. So #RYLFF #RYLFF #RYLFF

    Ik werk als creatieve professional. Ik ben tekstschrijver en ik maak video’s. Daarnaast ontwikkel ik concepten voor campagnes of evenementen. Ook begeleid ik rollenspellen en brainstormsessies. Benieuwd of we samen kunnen werken? Laten we een kop koffie gaan drinken (met taart!) en dan komen we er vast wel achter.
