I have a tradition on this blog of writing a post on celebrating the Martin Luther King holiday (here, here, here (especially) and here). The holiday is special to me for a number of reasons that I go into in the earlier posts on the topic and it’s one of my favorite holidays of the year.
I enjoy reading blog posts and other materials posted on the holiday, and today is no exception.
I especially liked Curt Rosengren’s Martin Luther King Day: 4 steps to making it personal.
The money quote:
This year, instead of just thinking, “Whoo-hoo! I have the day off,” or “Hey, there’s a sale at the mall,” spend some time exploring one simple question. “What could this day mean to me?” You can do this with any special day, but since today is MLK Day, that’s a good place to start.
Curt’s four steps:
1. Explore what it means to you.
2. How does this relate to my life?
3. What action does this suggest?
4. What is the first step, and when will I take it?
A great exercise.
