Living the good life means different things to different people.
The good life is about appreciating all your time, not just your leisure time. Far too many people get caught up in the mad rush of a corporate lifestyle and grow completely numb to the little moments, the simple building blocks of time that make life magical. Time, after all, is the single greatest element of life.
Slow Down – Urgency and haste instantly diminish accuracy, awareness and happiness. There is a big difference between getting things done and getting things done effectively.
Appreciate Life’s Simple Pleasures – The best things in life are free. From a quiet lakeside sunset to sleeping in on a rainy day, life’s greatest simple pleasures can only be purchased with mindful awareness.
Foster and Nurture Relationships – A happy, fulfilling life is a life shared with family and friends.
Be Self Sufficient – Freedom is the greatest gift. Self sufficiency is the greatest freedom.
Learn About Different Things – In life, a jack of all trades is far more equipped than a master of only one. Combining the two is the key.
Concentrate on Your Passions – True wealth comes naturally to those who are passionate about their endeavors.
Talk to Strangers – Quite simply, this is how you will meet great people.
Exercise Your 5 Senses – Sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch. Each provides a gateway to rewarding personal experiences.
Use What You Have – Success is not the byproduct of limitless resources. Success happens when you stretch the limits of the available resources.
Be Clear on Your Goals – You will never get where you want to go if you don’t know what you want.
Make a Decision – Indecision is the leading cause of missed opportunity and wasted time.
And my favorite: Assist Others – What goes around comes around.
Good stuff! These are just a few of my favorites, dig the full list via the smart folks over at: Marc & Angel Hack Life.
