Appreciation Day is an event that officially occurs on the 14thof
September. This date is significant because “Google.com” was
registered on September 14th.
Google Appreciation Day's main purpose is to better the lives of those who
celebrate it by encouraging the acquisition of knowledge, which will eventually
lead to the betterment of one's life.
Participants can spend as little as five minutes to as long as 24 hours
researching an area of their life they wish to improve upon (as long as the
knowledge gained can actually be applied to bettering your life). For
example, if one wishes to lose weight, he/she would spend time searching
Google for various weight loss techniques and strategies. The individual
would continue doing so until a satisfactory amount of information had been
obtained on the subject. However, it is not enough to merely obtain the
knowledge; one must actually apply what he/she has learned in an effort to
better their life.
Sit down and seriously think about your life. Ask yourself: “If I could
change anything about my life, without the chance of failure, what would it
be?” Write down what comes to mind.
Some examples would include: Bettering your financial standing, losing
weight, learning a specific skill such as guitar and learning various

Google Appreciation Day is not about a specific day in and of itself, but
rather it is about reminding us that most aspects of our life are within our
individual control and that they can be changed if one so chooses. So, every
time the 14th of September rolls around, use it as an opportunity to learn something
"The key to happiness in life is to focus on that which we can control, and
forget about the rest."
