Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Make Your Day Count

Make Your Day Count

Make Your Day Count

 “Don’t count the days.

Make the days count.”

Muhammad Ali 1942 – 2016, American Professional

Boxer and Archivist




As I see it . . . . . . .

Make your day count


Live your life one day at the time . . . . make your day count . . . . and you will make the most out of your day.


Muhammad Ali’s words ring true today as they did when they were first spoken.


When you focus on your day . . . . you make your day all that it can be. When you repeat your actions . . . . you create a success habit . . . . and build the forward momentum in your life and career.


Make your day count . . . . and your life and career will be moving in the right direction.

Building those success habits, Lou, are critical to staying in the zone day after day.

Does Lou ever have a bad selection at all, Kristin Johnston - REALTOR®? I don’t think I’ve ever seen one in the history of history. :)

Good morning Lou Ludwig ,

This is a very inspiring quote and one we should all read and reflect on. Counting the days is certainly not the same as making each day count in this journey we call life.

Each day is a gift - never to be taken for grated - and to be celebrated and enjoyed!

Hi Lou Ludwig, when I was a kid, I couldn't wait till I was older, now, I want the days to slow down.

I like your quote selection. This is excellent advice to share.

Excellent point Lou Ludwig as always from you.  I hate to waste time any day. I no relaxing is important also but there is time for that in my golden years.

 Every day is a gift and one must live it to the fullest and one must remember that! I hope you have a great weekend!

Lou- so true- some count the days until_____ happens but what we should focus on is making each day count.

Every day is a brand new opportunity, Lou. Ali is also an exemplary model for believing in oneself.

Every day is another chance to get it right Lou when we work for it. Great thoughts!

I call it "purpose". I make my days count by doing something that I can point to at the end of the day, something I am proud of. Every now and again, it's good to take a day off from "purpose" and just enjoy "being".

So wise. And yet we meet so many people who are just "killing time" waiting to do, or be, or have something until... what?

Hi Lou

Thanks for this reminder! It's sometimes so easy to get bogged down in minutia or worried about things one can't do anything about instead of focussing on today! Ali was a wise man!


Posted by Jeff Dowler, CRS, The Southern California Relocation Dude (Solutions Real Estate ) over 1 year ago

So true Lou Ludwig thanks for the reminder.  Thanks for helping me to refocus.

We can lose so many things in life that can be replaced. Except time.

What a great reminder: Make your day count.
