It’s Time for ‘Do It Different Day’

August 15, 2022
Executive Coaching

I’ve introduced this topic in the past, but I think it’s a good thing to revisit at least once a year. Any of my clients who have done it have always found that they change behaviors in their life because of it.


For starters, “do it different” can be whatever you want it to be. Here are a few suggestions…


— Mix up your workout routine so that you do something new

— Have something healthy for breakfast that you don’t normally eat

— Turn on a different genre of music as you get ready for the day

— Take a Personal Day and do things that are spur of the moment

— Surprise your children or someone you love by doing something new

— Change up your home and put the furniture in new locations

— Check Groupon for a massage special and make it an extended session

— Choose a restaurant with ethnic food you’ve never tried before

— Come up with something of impact to say when you greet anyone today

— Switch jobs with someone at work so that you can both compare notes

— Look through job listings so that you are sure you are in the right line of work

— Buy someone’s coffee at the coffee shop (even if you don’t know them)

— Collect all of the unwanted things in your home and take them to a shelter


You may have some other ideas, but if you change how you do things you are bound to be inspired and think differently in the future.
