What’s in a day? It’s not what Shakespeare encouraged the world to enquire about, but the question is critical because it helps us understand that what’s in one’s day is what’s in one’s life. For serial investor, entrepreneur, forex coach, international speaker, and mindset coach Luc Longmire, life is all about mastering one’s days, especially when one is serious about how it unfolds.
If life was a photograph, then each day would be a pixel that comes together to create that photograph. However, we generally tend to put more emphasis on certain days and take the rest of the days for granted. Not Luc. For him, “Every day is as critical as the next. Sure, there are days one tends to remember more than others, but I have come to realize that the days one tends to remember are often based on the days that are easy to forget. Those are the days of preparation and what I like to call the profundity of mundanity, where you go about your routine, organize your mind, and take the smaller steps that help you complete your journey to a goal.”
To master the day requires mastery over bad habits, habits that have been goals of laziness, greed, dishonesty, stupidity, and unnecessary fear. Luc says, “Take a hard look at your day. Does it meet your expectations? Has it pushed you closer to your goal? Were you able to draw a new, practical, and useful insight from how you spent the day? If yes, keep it up. If no, then diagnose the distractions and aim to use the days to come to minimize their presence and impact.”
Every day is a new day and yet the same in many ways. In its connection to life, as it’s been and is yet to be, the importance of the present day cannot be undermined.
