Same good and bad challenges 100 years apart?

Odds are great the vibe was the same extraordinarily high level of excitement in 1914, a century apart from today.

Not much changes in the human psyche. Why aren’t all our days extraordinary?

The vibe around homecoming is several levels higher than the karma around other fall weekends.


We all know why.

The bigger question is why do we not treat each weekend as this special?

Then convert this thinking to our daily living.

Asking why and why not is transformational.

Why are some days extraordinary?

Why are’t all our days extraordinary?

But it requires time.

Yeah, there’s always a catch.
