The Most Important Email You Can Receive Every Day

I received this email earlier this morning. It’s my Youroscope for today. It was sent to me by the person I was last evening. It’s an email I receive every morning from the person I was the night before.

This is a Youroscope, not a to-do list. These are the things that I want to have happen today.

You should get into this practice yourself – write your own daily horoscope. A Youroscope.

Why would you trust a weird stranger with something as important as your horoscope for the day? Why not write it yourself?

Three things happen when you get into the discipline of creating your own daily Youroscope.

First, it gives you space to think about what you want to have happen that day, not just obsess about the things that you have to make happen. That is why the words “from out of the blue” so often show up in my daily Youroscope.

Second, knowing what you want to have happen, you will start to pay attention (those two words also show up a lot). You’ll find yourself talking with strangers on airplanes instead of gluing your nose to the screen. Meeting one of my Advisory Board members, who is also a good friend, was something that was previously anticipated in my Youroscope – one of many such examples of my own and that I have heard from others who have taken up the practice.

And third, when you know what you want your day to bring you, and you pay better attention to what’s going on around you, sometimes the universe works in mysterious ways that I could never begin to understand, much less explain, to create serendipity.

If this sounds silly to you, don’t take my word for it. For one month, invest several minutes every evening in visualizing your ideal tomorrow, then send yourself an email with your own Youroscope so it will be the first thing you see when you open your inbox the next morning.

At the end of that month, send me an email to tell me about your serendipities.
