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?

If You're Not Doing What You Can, You'll Never Do What You Want, with Andy Frisella - MFCEO252

Everybody has dreams for their future. But not everybody understands that what you hope to do on a much higher level later, you can begin to do right now.
