4. WHAT TO CELEBRATE TODAY:Today is Run it Up the Flagpole to See if Anyone Salutes Day. Today is set aside to allow people to do just that. Be creative today. Use this day to try and test new ideas and concepts. Don't limit the ideas to business applications. In your personal life, try out a new dress or clothing style, perhaps a different haircut. Or, maybe buy a new houseflag and run it up the flagpole to see if anyone salutes...or even notices.
