- It is a day to put other's concern ahead of yours. Inconvenience yourself, not others. Inconvenience Yourself is not intended to suggest that people become completely self-sacrificing. Instead, it encourages people to pay attention to their own actions, understand how those actions impact others, and adjust actions which have a negative affect on others.

Golf in America Day
- The so-called "father of golf in America" was an immigrant from Scotland by the name of John Reid. Being a Scot he obviously knew of golf so he asked a good friend, Robert Lockhart, another well-to-do Scot living in New York to do him a favor. Lockhart was about to embark on a trip back to Great Britain so Reid asked if he would make a purchase for him of golf clubs and balls. Well, Lockhart did his job well as he traveled to St. Andrews in Scotland and went to the golf shop of Old Tom Morris, the then famous clubmaker, golfer and champion of the first Open. Lockhart asked Morris to ship two dozen gutta-percha balls (molded from the sap of a tree); three wooden clubs; a driver, brassie and spoon; plus three iron clubs, a cleek, sand iron and putter. The package arrived in February, 1888.

Walking the Dog Day
- I am sure that you walk your dog every day. But on this day walking with your dog is a must. If you don't have a dog, perhaps you can join a friend while he or she walks their dog.
