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?

What makes your work worthwhile? Is it only worldwide influencers who make 9-figures that should feel good about themselves & their lives? Or can you feel great about life if you're a blue collar worker, a teacher, or someone who doesn't even earn $45,000 in income? Whether it's people who think "happiness is the new rich" or people who equate being famous with being impactful, there's a lot of confusion out there about how to evaluate the worth of a job & the value of a human life.
