How to Have a Great Day

Recalling NC State Coach Jim Valvano's legendary speech at the 1993 ESPY Awards, Andy Frisella shares his thoughts on what makes a great day--a day that makes you happy to be alive. Vaughn Kohler joins him in the studio.

#1:  Get Your Critical Tasks Done

A productive day is a great day.  But that's only part of it.

#2:  Learn Something New

Don't kill your brain on mindless shit.  Improve it.  Every day.

#3:  Be Thankful

We're too focused on what we don't have.  Be grateful for what you do have.

#4:  Be Generous

This involves more than money.  It includes being generous with your time and abilities.  Invest in people.

#5:  Enjoy Something Money Can't Buy

For Andy, it's bulldogs and relationships with his wife, friends, and family.  What is it for you?
