Today, February 17, is My Way Day. I know, I know, I know—if everyone thinks it’s their day to have it their way, it doesn’t seem like today is going to be such a swell day. So let me explain. My Way Day is a nod to scientists, inventors, writers, artists, and all others who have bravely pursued their ideas even when few believed the ideas had merit. Think about it. What if Ben Franklin, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, George Washington Carver, or Charles Babbage had given up on their ideas? Things would certainly be different today!
So, you see, My Way Day isn’t a day to have your every wish. It is, however, a day to take stock of your own ideas. Is there an idea you’ve considered but haven’t pursued. Maybe today’s the day to get the ball rolling. After all, it is My Way Day!
