Today Is The Day...

A couple weeks ago we had our annual team Christmas party.

We did a Secret Santa, and my gift was a coffee mug from my Santa, who happened to be Coach Kim. 

On the coffee mug it says...

"Today Is The Day!"

For 99.9% of people in this world it would have been just another coffee mug you stick in your cabinet.

For me, it's a reminder of my biggest area of opportunity, and Kim is helping me with it. 

One of my largest strengths is to be able to have a vision and plan out 3, 4, 5 years from now, reverse engineer that into a daily or weekly goal, and then execute on that daily.

It's no coincidence that Megan and I bought a house at 26, or that we got married in 2016. 

5 years ago both of those were on my 5-year plan, and I reverse engineered the goals into manageable chunks that I executed daily, weekly, and monthly. 

With that comes a massive area of opportunity...

At any given time, I'm very rarely "in the moment."

I'm always thinking about ways to make things better, what's next, and it's never good enough. 

During the holidays this is especially true. 

I'm not one to sit around and do nothing. 

"Family time."

I'll be reading a blog, watching a video on marketing, or planning out my next week. 

I know it's scary, but I'm being honest. 

The mug that Kim got me is my daily reminder (I drink A LOT of coffee) that TODAY IS THE DAY.

So, I'm writing this for you, and I'm writing this as a reminder for me. 

Today is the day. 

The picture below represents a lot for me. 

It's a picture of the happiest day of my life. 

It's a picture of my team that I love dearly. 

It's a picture of a card that we gave all past and present clients of Spurling. 

And it's a picture from the only day this year where I can truly say I was "in the moment" all day. 

Today is the day. 

As you spend time with your family this holiday weekend, remember today is the day. 

Soak it in. 


Be present. 

Today is the day. 

Happy Holidays from my family to yours. 

I hope you enjoy every minute of it. 

Dedicated to Your Success,

Doug Spurling
