Friday night topic: Your own Groundhog Day?

— 5:08 PM on February 3, 2006

In the movie Groundhog Day, Bill Murray's character gets a chance to live the same day over and over again until he gets it right. Once he figures out the drill, he ends up spending his seemingly endless reserve of time on various sorts of self-improvement, learning to play the piano, reading great books, and doing good deeds. Eventually, of course, breaks free of the cycle once he has sufficiently improved himself and his behavior. It's an intriguing premise. Given a similar scenario, with the limitation that you will wake up each new day in the same place and the same events will happen around you until you get it right, how you would spend your time? What would you do to improve yourself, and what sort of 24-hour projects would you attempt? Would you orchestrate a one-day, one-man gambit for world peace, seek new sorts of knowledge or skills, or what?
