The basic math of happiness

  more give

+ less take

__________

a happier you

(give more) + (take less) = a happier you

No matter how we arrange these four little words,

they can make us – and the world – happier,

if we let them.

– take less, give more –

“Be the change you want to see.”  Ghandi

“The Happiness Project”, Part II

“The days are long the years are short.”  Gretchen Rubin author of “The Happiness Project”.

Say it to yourself, very slowly with your full attention: “The days are long, the years are short.”

Enough said.

Do something – anything – today that moves you closer to your dreams.

Be a tad braver, a bit kinder, and a smidgen happier, too.

And, then repeat what works, and stop doing what doesn’t.

Okay? 

Thank you!

More on Rubin’s book, “The Happiness Project” each Monday in May.

 

Advanced question of the day.

Here is the advanced version of the magic question, which I shared with you last Wednesday. 

Please note: this is not for beginners.  

If you haven’t read, learned and used the original magic question, please do so now.  

We will wait for you to catch up, it’s not a problem. 

It’s like the oxygen mask thing on the plane; you need to have yours in place first. 

I think that is because magic questions are so powerful and all – they have the ability to change your life, so it’s best to practice on yourself first. 

Okay, here’s the advanced version, I am going to trust that you already practiced the original magic question. 

“What one thing can I do today to bring joy to the lives of others?   

You can use it at home, at work, while shopping, volunteering, playing with your kids, golfing, etc.  

“What one thing can I do today to bring joy to the lives of others?   

You can use it in large or small group settings.  One size fits all. 

“What one thing can I do today to bring joy to the lives of others?   

Works globally, too.  

“What one thing can I do today to bring joy to the lives of others?    

Would you like to write it down? 

“What one thing can I do today to bring joy to the lives of others?    

Try it and let me know how it goes.  

PS Research shows the more we help others the happier we become, that’s the magic.
