Today's Birthday (05/12/11). Ask your intuition, "Who am I?" and get a response. If you listen quietly, you already know what you care about the most, what you're most committed to and what you truly want for the world. Define that in writing as a birthday gift to yourself (and a map for the year).
To get the advantage, check the day's rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging.
