Do this and you'll be happier! Guaranteed.
Today it's christmas eve and I have something really cool for you. I have a little trick that can radically change your life and get rid of a lot of hassles in your life.
With 2019 approaching, most of us want to make changes but we usually suck at making positive change and at sticking to our resolutions.
This exercise will be 10x easier than resolutions and will produce fare better results.
Merry christmas guys!
So there is that one exercise that I wanted you guys to do. And it is going to help you for two thousand and nineteen. OK. So here's the thing.
I want you to take a sheet of paper. And you will divide it into three columns. On the first column on the left, you will put everything you absolutely love to do. Stuff that you absolutely love. I love basketball and all that stuff.
So everything that makes you happy. You have to put that on that list. Like the things that if you had, you know, the perfect day and if there was something you could do, then what would it be? Okay, so you put that on that list.
Now on the middle column, you are going to write down what your average day looked like in 2018. All right. So everything you were doing normally every day, like the kind of stuff that you're doing, just put it on there. Maybe you’re commuting and all that stuff. You know, like it can be good or bad.
So you put what you do on an average day. So for now, there is no judgment as to whether it's good or whether it's bad or anything. OK.
On the final column, write 2019 on the header of that column. Now compare the first column with the second column, and the third column is what you need to do to have the perfect day. In the third column, what we want to do is write down what you are going to do in two thousand nineteen.
So how are you going to recreate that column A and column B? Just put some, some action steps or something. It's big. It's very important for you guys to realize that, for example, oh, well, you know what? I actually love playing basketball, but I don't play basketball. I need to change something.
So I’ll make sure that I go to basketball more often and it will make me happier. Right. So, you know. So if you see something in the middle column that you don't like doing and you're doing it on average, try to figure out how to get rid of it.
Okay. That's the exercise. So this is how, you know, people have resolutions and a list for the year. So it's usually nice. You know what? I kind of like to add this to my life or whatever. Right. What I'm asking you here is deeper than this. Right. What makes you happy?
Do this and you'll be happier! Guaranteed
People just want to be happy. And this exercise is going to help you be happier. All right. So let's say, for example, on the first column you had. Oh, you know what? I love spending time with my kids.
And then you realize that you know what? On this the second column, I'm commuting four hours a day or something. I don't know. Or I go to the bar with my buddies. Well, you can make some change there. Well, for commuting, you might actually try to find some sort of solution or something. I don't know.
But if there is something you really want and that's not what you do, figure out a way to actually do it. And this is going to make you happy. OK? It's not something that you just want to add in your life for whatever reason, because you've seen it on TV or something.
What you have on this list is personal to you. Nobody will have the same list as you do. OK. That's something you need to understand.
My formula for happiness is pretty much to figure out what you like. Figure out what you don't like and then what you have to do is do as many of the things you like and as little as possible things you don't like.
OK, so this exercise is a good exercise to be able to do this, right? So you need to identify what you like first and then figure out a way to do it more often.
It's something that's, you know, super personal and unique to you. OK. And this is going to make you one of the happiest people on this planet.
