How to make today matter?

I was working with a patient recently who lamented, “Nothing I do matters.” What about you? Do you feel like your days are a meaningless shuffle without merit or purpose? And yet, who’s to say that washing dish is any less important that building a bridge or writing a book? From a Self-Coaching perspective, it’s not what you do that matters, it’s how you feel about what you do that does.
There’s a wonderful Zen adage that sums up the essence and simplicity of a meaningful life: chop wood, carry water. Finding serenity, happiness and meaning in your life doesn’t have to be complicated, not if whatever you do, you just do it with your full attention and full heart. Do this and you’ll never need to ask, “What’s the meaning of life?”
