In How To Be The Luckiest Person Alive, James Altucher recommends making a daily list. Here’s a list I came up with yesterday.
20 Ways To Improve My Life
- Walk outside
- Cook my own food
- Ball work every day
- Release Technique
- EFT or Zpoint
- Silence at work, home, in car
- Dye yarn
- Spin yarn
- Be outside doing nothing
- Pet and talk to cats
- Get enough sleep
- Be grateful
- Random acts of kindness
- Stop talking so much and listen more
- Watch and enjoy all types of weather
- Watch birds and other wildlife more
- Look at the sky at night for 10 minutes
- Breath techniques
- Give things away
- Work in art journal
- Take art lessons
- Make a daily list
You’ll notice that my list titled “20 ways” actually contains 35 items. I got going and could not stop. My ability to make lists and generate new ideas has quickly improved since I began. I had trouble coming up with 15 items on my first list “Alternatives to College”. That list has grown since I started it. Tells me what is really growing is my competency in thinking of new ideas. I should be generating lists of 100 items each very soon.
This was the second list I made on Saturday. The first list was “what I did yesterday”. Altucher recommends what I call “yesterday lists”. They illustrate exactly how much you accomplish every day. Even on days when you don’t think you’ve done much of anything you really do a lot. Try making a yesterday list and you will see he’s right. Your memory will improve too.
I would love to hear any ideas you have on things to add to my “How to Improve My Life” list.
