For the next 100 days...

Kara Powell | Jun 7, 2011

I enjoyed reading through this list of 60 small ways to improve your life in the next 100 days. My personal favorite was:

59. For the next 100 days, place the best possible interpretation on the actions of others.

Part of why I appreciated this list is because the start of summer is a logical time to stop and evaluate and think about what we wish was different about our lives, at least for the next 3 months. In fact, the focus of our small group this past weekend was our goals for the summer.

In your life or ministry, what are you planning to do differently this summer?
