365 Gratitude Challenge

Aug 17, 2013 – Aug 17, 2014

When asked, Tim Ferriss says the single most powerful action we can take to instantly improve the quality of our lives, is to actively practice gratitude. Think about the things we are grateful for first thing in the morning and last thing at night.

I’ve been doing this on and off for some time, and would like to make this a daily ritual. For the next year of my life, from one birthday to the next, I want to record down one thing that I am grateful for every single day.

I will be tweeting daily with the hashtag #365gratitude @ZhaZhang
