The Third Annual Give Up Your "Shoulds" Day Is Today!

WELCOME to the 3rd Annual Give Up Your "Shoulds" Day!  I couldn't be happier to celebrate this holiday again and to hear all the "shoulds" that people are willing to give up for a day.  Remember: Giving up a "should" does not necessarily mean you are going to do drastically different things.  It may mean doing the exact same things differently.  Either way you get to wake up on a Monday morning without having all the "shoulds" weigh you down.  So here's how it works:

MORNING: Please post on your FB or Twitter status one "should" you are willing to give up for one day. Please include @Damon L. Jacobs so I can see it. (on Twitter it's "DamonLJacobs").

2pm-3pm EST: Listen to our "should-less" blogtalk radio broadcast with General Hospital's Jacklyn Zeman at, at 2pm EST (11am PST) .Call in live and share with us your "should"!

3pm-4pm EST: Engage in Twitter discussion with Damon about "shoulds" at

8pm-9:30pm EST: If you are in NYC, come to the FREE workshop, "How To Lose The Should To Get The Good" at 208 W. 13th street. Free Brownies made by Matt Cameron, aka, the "Zesty Chef" of New York.

THROUGHOUT THE DAY: You can listen to me discuss the bliss of living life "should-less" by listening to my appearance on any one of these shows:

Feast of Fun
Da Doo-Dirty Show (Damon comes on around 85min)
Brandon's Buzz 

If this event appeals to someone you know, please tell them as well!

Thank you so much, I look forward to sharing a wonderful "Should-less" day with all of you!
