What are you excited about?

My daughter is about to start a new job and move halfway across the country. My wife and I are excited for her and love hearing all the updates about the job, the move, and her new home.

We’re also excited because she’ll be living much closer to us.

It’s exciting to have something to be excited about.

Big or small, a new job or a new book to read, something that puts a smile on your face is a good thing.

So, what’s new and exciting in your life right now?

If you can’t think of anything, go get something.

Get a new client. Plan a vacation. Sign up for a cooking class or start outlining your novel.

Do something that makes you feel good when you think about it.

You know you’re got the right thing when you get busy with other things for an hour or two and then remember “it”.

Of course, it’s not the thing itself that gives you joy so much as the anticipation of it. Christmas morning is more exciting than the day after.

And, excitement is contagious. When you’re excited about something, the people around you pick up on the feeling. They like being around you.

Being happy is good for business. So go buy something that makes you happy. You can probably write it off.
