It's time for you can't just stop bigask question of the day. Welcome to you can't just stop the place for quietlystubborn entrepreneurs with big goals and green after encountering hundreds of hiachieving athletes, entrepreneurs and world changers. I've discovered thatmany times their impact comes from the questions they ask as much as theactions they take. That's why I invite you to answer a question each and everyday to reach your door and now for today's question. What can I do to day that I'll begrateful for in twenty years? We just really recently, we justrecently passed through the twentieth anniversary in nine eleven and fulldisclosure. I spent that day being somewhat emotional, that the is always tough for me,especially those big anniversaries like the five year ten year fifteen year,because we start doing all the all the... stories right, we're going backand relive in the day, seeing all the video- and you know that got me thinking twenty years is a long time and it'snot a long time. It goes by in a flash, because you know nine eleven to meseems like just yesterday right that was twenty years ago, and it just seemslike yesterday there's so much about that day. I can remember, but at thesame time it seems like light years ago. I look at pictures of myself fromtwenty years ago. Look at pictures of my wife and I havefrom twenty years ago, like these two little do eyed kids right with no clue. So I the lack and change in twenty years,and but what what seeds did I plant twentyyears ago that I'm grateful for today and what can I do today, then I'm goingto be grateful for in twenty years, because it's going to go by, you know...

Bang gone it's going to go by and whatdid I? What am I going to do today? That's going to impact me twenty yearsfrom now, I can think of specific things aroundthat time frame of nine eleven that I did that I'm grateful for today. Aroundthat time I was newly in business. I'd started my first, not my first but myfirst real business. I had other businesses before that. Idon't know if I'd call them real, but I had that was my first real businessthat I started right just a year before that. So I'm reallygrateful. I did that because I think myself every day for that that I that Ihad the guts to take that leap and make that business. I can think about things. You know thisis easy because they have that fence post in nine eleven, which is righthere, which really helps me think of what was I doing this month twentyyears ago, and I know exactly what I was doing. I was taking really goodcare of a couple customers. I learned a...

...lot about customer service. You knowtwenty years ago that I'm grateful for today. I made some relationships twentyyears ago that I'm grateful for today, but this question is about moving tothe future. So what am I going to do today that I'm going to be grateful forand let's do, the math twenty forty one holy shed, O thousand and forty one?It's only twenty years away and when you say it out loud, it just seems likeOh, my that can't be possible, but two thousand and forty one. What am I goingto be grateful for today, September of two thousand and twenty one? What am Igoing to be grateful for to in twenty years that I did today and there's a lot of things that you coulddo today and you know what they are, I'm not going to give them to you. So I kind of went, dark and heavy todayand sorry, but maybe they'll hope you playin a seed. Maybe you'll dosomething with today that you're going... look back twenty years from now andsaid. Hang I'm glad I listen to that. PODCAST see you tomorrow. I.
