Today Is The Day...

I shared this story last year, but I instantly thought of it when I went to sit down and write something this morning, the last piece before we all check out and do our Christmas activities.

Last year Coach Kim got me a Christmas gift. 

She's awesome like that, but this Christmas gift was extra special to me. 

What's funny is it was probably a less than $10 gift, a coffee mug in fact, which to most, would have been pretty normal.

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 has been a huge mentor to me in this category of life.  

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, that we got married in 2016, or had Kaden in 2017. 

Five 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, it's never good enough, and constantly focusing on the future. 

During the holidays this is especially true. 

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

I'd 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. 

This year is going to be extra special to me with it being my sons first Christmas.

He's a great reminder for me to slow down, enjoy each moment, and remember...

Today is the day. 

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

Soak it in. 


Be present. 

Put that phone away. 

Pick your head up.

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
