Creating the life that you desire is a daily endeavor. It’s done by stringing together intentional, productive, meaningful days, one day at a time. And one of the best ways to do that is to use strategic questions to direct your focus and actions in order to optimize each day of your life. 

Last week I sent you an email titled “ONE question to help you experience your most meaningful Thanksgiving ever.” Well, I’ve since pondered the value of applying that ONE question—not just on holidays—but EVERY single day, in order to create the most meaningful LIFE possible.  

So, for today’s podcast, I’m exploring how asking, answering, and applying ONE question can help you to create and experience the life you desire, day-after-day-after-day, every single day, for years to come.


  • Why it’s so important to be intentional about how you show up every day.
  • My Top 5 answers to this ONE question 
  • The power of being at peace with the things you can’t change – and why we can always choose between inner peace and inner turmoil.
  • The difference between intellectual gratitude and heartfelt, earth-shattering gratitude. 
  • Why you sometimes have to believe in the belief someone else has in you until your own belief catches up.
