Seven Days towards
Becoming a Remarkable! Leader

Day 1 - Notice the Remarkable

iPhone

Today's Lesson

Noticing and appreciating the individuals you are surrounded by every day is truly Remarkable! By taking time to recognize and appreciate others, you'll not only lift a spirit, but you will inspire them to do the same.

Today's Challenge

The Remarkable! 7-day Challenge starts out easy. Think of someone Remarkable! you know. It might be someone who did something amazing in your life or someone who is persevering in a time of struggle. What do you find Remarkable? Reach out to them today and tell them why you find them Remarkable! Easy, right?

Bonus Ideas

If you’re feeling extra inspired on day one, don’t stop at just a phone call or a note. Put together a little extra something for them.

  • A homemade baked good.
  • A movie night package with candy, popcorn and your favorite DVD.
  • A car care package with car wax, tire cleaner and air fresheners.

Day 2 - Pay it Backward

iPhone

Today's Lesson

You never know when something as random as an unexpected gift will change the trajectory of someone’s day. Generosity inspires generosity. Kickstart something awesome right now.

Today's Challenge

Today’s challenge is a surprise attack. Go to your favorite drive-thru and pay for the person behind you. You can leave a quick note or message to let them know that you have paid for them because they are Remarkble!

Bonus Ideas

Don’t have access to a drive-thru? Can’t get away from the office? Go buy a few gift cards. They can be big or small. Maybe a single cup of coffee or an entire week’s worth of groceries. Then give them away.

Day 3 - A Deeper Conversation

iPhone

Today's Lesson

Time is probably the most valuable thing you’ll ever give to another person. Quality time has a way of refreshing our souls, clearing our thoughts, and inspiring us to be better and treat others better.

Today's Challenge

Tonight you’re going to have dinner with family. With your spouse. With someone. Instead of eating and rushing on to the next thing, turn dinner toward the Remarkable! by asking the five questions below in the bonus section. We think they’ll start some unforgettable conversations

Bonus Ideas

  • What one day do you wish you could relive? Describe that day. You can't change anything about the day. You can only experience it for a second time.
  • What's the best gift you've ever received?
  • If you had to give everything you own to one person, who would it be? Why?
  • Who is the first person you think of when you hear the word, "Remarkable?"
  • What's one thing you would do, if you knew you wouldn't fail?

Day 4 - Dear Friend

iPhone

Today's Lesson

Every day is another opportunity to express appreciation to someone Remarkable! in your life. Thank someone today in a deeply personal way.

Today's Challenge

You might want to sit down for this one (because it’s easier to write that way). Pick one person who means the world to you and write them a note. That’s right, a note. Not an email. A good, old-fashioned handwritten note. Tell them how important they are to you, or tell them how you’ve seen them affect others, or just tell them you were thinking of them. It’s so simple. In fact, the hardest thing will be finding their address.

Day 5 - Let Me Get That For You

iPhone

Today's Lesson

Sometimes it’s the simplest things that have the biggest impact. Actions are contagious. Will you be a Remarkable! planter of positivity into those around you?

Today's Challenge

Today, for the entire day, hold open every door you come across and smile as people walk though. Easy. Feeling like you want an even greater challenge? Check out the bonus idea below.

Bonus Ideas

End every conversation you have today with a compliment to the person with whom you’re speaking.

Day 6 - Here's a Tip

iPhone

Today's Lesson

What happens when you take a random act of kindness to a whole new level? It becomes a Remarkable! act of kindness. Today, you’re going to reward one of the most overlooked and underappreciated individuals – the restaurant server. Check, please.

Today's Challenge

This one starts with a meal. Go out for dinner or order a pizza, anything really. When it comes time to tip, go big. How big? Well, don’t think 15%. Think more like 100%. That’s right. If your meal cost $20, give a $20 tip … or more. Be sure to leave a note like “Here is a remarkable tip for a remarkable person – you!”

Bonus Ideas

It’s up to you if want to stick around to see how they respond. It might be just as fun to sneak around the corner and watch from a distance as they discover the gift. If it’s a delivery person at your front door, just be prepared for a hug.

Day 7 - Pass it On

iPhone
