The Uncommon Thing

No one wants to be ordinary. We all crave excellence, but sometimes our BIG ideas can seem so unattainable. In fact, if something is TOO new, it may not be well-received. Fortunately, you can make something common unique by simply putting a new spin on an old favorite.

If you bake oatmeal cookies, adding chocolate chips or cranberries can make it new and exciting. Who wants plain oatmeal cookies anyway? But you can't argue with the health benefits of oats.

You see it everywhere, from social networking sites to cell-phones, cars to vacation hot spots, and work-out equipment to fitness fads. Nothing great is truly new. It's just renewed, just a little better than what came before it.

What small thing can YOU do to spice up the world around you TODAY?
