I’m writing to you at 7:50am on a Monday morning.

According to the European Journal of Epidemiology, a sudden surge in heart attacks and strokes will kick off in about 10 minutes. And for one full hour, this cardiovascular storm will rage on, sending many men and women to emergency rooms. Some to their deaths.

Why are Monday mornings so bad for your health?

Could it do with the fact that, according to a Gallup survey, 71 percent of the people driving to work right now are headed to a job they feel completely disengaged from?

I mean, I can see the I-8 freeway from my window here. It’s 8:13am now. (I write slow.) The left lane is at a standstill, while the others appear to be moving at around 15 mph. That can’t be fun.

I wonder. If I slapped a giant 4-lane blood pressure cuff on them, how many of those reluctant, snail-paced drivers are on the verge of their first cardiovascular event.

Then again, maybe I don’t really want to know. What I’m really curious about is how many lives our featured Quote of the Day Show speaker can save with today’s message.

Yes, The QOD Show is back! (And here to stay, with the help of our new friends at Nightingale Conant. See below.)

In QOD #007, the great motivational speaker, Les Brown, reveals how finding the meaning of your life can literally save your life. Because …

“Your Life is Worth Finding What It is That You’re Supposed to Do!”

This one is gold!

Today’s QOD clip is from Les Brown’s Power of Purpose audio program available for instant MP3 download on the Nightingale Conant website.
