A number of months ago, I happened to notice that this guy named Robert D. Smith  was following me on Twitter. I probably wouldn’t have noticed except that I saw he was Andy Andrew’s manager. My husband had just recently told me that he had read one of Andy Andrew’s books and enjoyed it, so when I saw that connection, I naturally had to checked out Robert’s website .
As soon as I went to his website, I could tell Robert and I were on a similar wavelength when it comes to intentional living. I downloaded his free ebook called Battle-Tested Branding  and was so challenged by it that I went and pre-ordered his first book.
20,000 Days and Counting  is a quick read. He says it should only take you an hour to read. It actually took me two hours because I wanted to carefully mull over its pages instead of rushing through it.
It’s packed with a challenging message on the importance of living each day fully and completely. However, it’s not about just being ultra productive but about enjoying and savoring all of life’s little moments and having an purpose, plan, and clear-cut vision for why you’re here on this earth.
As is evidenced from the video above, Robert is highly energetic and enthusiastic about life — and I think we all could use a dose of some of his excitement about life. I think just about anyone in any situation in life will find motivation and inspiration in the pages of 20,000 Days and Counting .
