Today, I thought I would look at another one of the items from Sagmeister’s list. It reads,

Over time, I get used to everything and start taking it for granted.

How true this is of many people in the world today. In particular, I fall prey to this habit. It is so easy to forget the beauty and majesty of the world around us.

It is far too easy to neglect those we love and ignore the simple pleasures in life. If you are up early in the morning, take a moment and watch the sunrise. If you have a long commute home in the evening and encounter a lot of traffic, relax and enjoy the sunset. Watch the changing colors in the sky as the sun dips below the horizon. Smile at those you pass along the way. Don’t forget that this is a huge world, but we as people are not so very different.
