A great life is the sum total of all the worthwhile things you’ve been doing one by one


Let’s take this quote to help us think about how we are spending our life and how we may look at it at end. What will be a great life?

Apply the below technique as a way to change your mindset and program your mind.

  1. REFLECT:  on a beautiful memories from past. What simple yet special events come to mind?
  2. RESPOND: What can do daily so that you can always look back and have special memories?
  3. INTEGRATE: Any time in future, if life gets busy, remember this quote and how you take time to do worthwhile things.

Combine reading and applying Reflect and Respond practice with an Affirmation: “I am grateful to have people in my life who…”

A great life is the sum total of all the worthwhile things you’ve been doing one by one.

My view on this quote: Hi everyone! Todays quote is by Richard Bach. We already talked about him in the above content, so now i think we are ready to get to the quote. His quote is “A great life is the sum total of all the worthwhile things you’ve been doing one by one.” My sister and I talked about this, and we realized that this is actually true.

Our generation spends a lot of time on devices and although those will help us make memories as well, we should also know that we can make great memories out of going for walks, talking and spending time with our friends and family, even if they are little things, they are the things we will reflect on and cherish when we are older.

Something i just learned about Richard Bach, is that we actually have the same birthday!

Hi this is Ajooni. I am seven years old. Today I will be doing my review on this quote, “A great life is the sum total of all the worthwhile things you’ve been doing one by one.”

So, I think the meaning of this quote is if you want & have a great life, it should be filled with not just watching tv all day, But having lots of great, fun adventures & moments. Having very little sad events & having more positive events than negative ones. You should have fun in what you’re doing and doing what is fair and what you want. You should respect others feelings and just like we don’t judge a  book by its cover we don’t judge a person by how they look. We respect, care, and help others. We don’t bother or bully people, but we care for them and help them.

So i hope you liked what i wrote and thank you for reading. Merry Christmas, Warm Wishes. From Ajooni *u*

    What wonderful views you have about the quote "A great life is the sum total of all the worthwhile things you’ve been doing one by one.”

    Worthwhile things are only poissble if you have a Positive outlook towards every thing in your life. A positive attitude can transform any situation into a bright and beautiful moment.

    Waheguru ji bless you both young souls with Chardikala so that not only you be in a positive attitude but encourage others to be the same too.
