Today's National Day is one I think all of us could take advantage of. I think it is beneficial to occasionally (or often) step out of or comfort zones and challenge ourselves.


Every year on April 23rd, National Take a Chance Day encourages us to break out of our comfort zone.

Most of us have unaccomplished goals or dreams. What if this was the day to take the chance to make them happen? Even if it is just the first step toward that goal, it will be one step closer than before.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowline, sail away from the safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. ~ Mark Twain

Uncertain where to start? Polish up that resumé, sign up for a foreign language class, or buy a pair of hiking shoes. Those are the first steps to taking chances on new jobs, traveling to a foreign country, or hiking that trail.

Ready for a bigger chance? Buy that plane ticket or take your business plan to the bank. It’s time to broaden those horizons.

HOW TO OBSERVE #NationalTakeAChanceDay

  • Celebrate your goals or dreams by taking a chance and getting started today! 
  • Share a time you took a chance and it paid off.
  • Share your goals and how you’re going to achieve them.

I love music and love learning to play music. I recently challenged (and continue to) challenged myself by learning (or trying) to play the violin. It is, by far, the most difficult instrument I have ever tried to learn. Playing it in front of people is taking a big chance for me. My ultimate goal is to be able to play Stephane Grapellii's version of the old Harlem Globetrotter's theme song - Sweet Georgia Brown.
