Your Last Bad Day Can Start with Lunch: Michael O'Brien

What does having a bad day mean to you? For many of us, it’s feeling discouraged about our jobs or worrying about our not-so-great habits. Maybe you’re just bored, but have accepted that grinding through another day that doesn’t “feel like you” is just the way it has to be.

Michael O’Brien’s “last bad day” was different.

You owe it to yourself to hear about it in his own words, and I guarantee you’ll be moved by the shocking event that became a beautiful story of rethinking one’s perspective on what matters most. And you’ll be inspired to act. Here are some ideas:

  • read Michael’s (short and insightful) book My Last Bad Day Shift (FREE + shipping or only $3.95 on Kindle)

  • remind yourself how important it is to manage your energy and let yourself recover by watching this 2-minute video tidbit

  • replace saying “I’m too busy” with “I have control over my time. It’s my most precious resource. I’m determined to spend it on the things that matter most.”

  • get serious by blocking off at least 30 minutes on your calendar each workday just for you
    (I bet he means lunch…)

Just like Box Lunch Lifers, Michael’s on a mission to end bad days. But, like, a million of them. Are you with him? Find him on Facebook, or share YOUR Last Bad Day story using #mylastbadday on Instagram and LinkedIn.

You don’t have to be famous to change lives. You just have to be the BEST YOU. Because everyone benefits when you are striving to become your best.
