Take Your Big Leap

by Kris Pitcher

Welcome to your leap year! Every four years we get a leap year, which has an extra day. You get 366 days instead of the regular 365 days to make your impact.

We get this extra day in order to keep the calendar year synchronized with the astronomical year. And did you know a non leap year is called a Common Year? Neither did I.

I guess my question is...if we have this extra day, this extra special day - what will you do to take your big leap? How will you make this amazing extra day, extra amazing?

I feel like if we get this extra leap every four years, we ought to take advantage of it. Is there something that has been holding you back? Something that you can leap forward past?

Should you set a leap goal? A stretch goal? Have you been coasting along doing the bare minimum to get by? These are just questions we have time to ponder on an extra day.

This is no common year and we should set the bar a little higher for ourselves. It's rare that we are given anything "extra", but we can give ourselves something extra every day.

Take your big leap! Be extraordinary on this "extra" day. Make your impact, on your life and on the lives of others. Don't waste time though, next year will be a common year. Ready? Set? Leap!
