Applying the book of James

We have been studying the book of James in our Sunday School class. In order to apply this to our daily lives, we have made a post-it note reminder that we look at first thing in the morning, to do the following things everyday:
ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR BLESSINGS DAILY (We have so much to be thankful for that we take for granted, when you concentrate on the small things that we are so blessed with everyday- you tend to see just how much beauty surrounds our lives and it is easier to look past the negative things that we let consume us!)
FOCUS ON ETERNITY NOT TODAY OR TOMORROW (We get so caught up in the "what-ifs" of our lives, we forget that nothing is as important as eternity)
LOOK FOR WAYS TO EXPAND HIS KINGDOM (Your ability is only as strong as your faith, if you have faith that you can make a difference- God will grant you the ability!)
HOW CAN I BETTER USE MY MATERIAL POSESSIONS TO BETTER GLORIFY GOD
