Happy Monday, happy people!
Just a short post today… Here are 3 simple questions to ask yourself this morning.
Asking these questions once in a while (especially at the start of the work week) will help you lead a happier, richer, and more intentional life.
Here we go…
1. What Tiny Little Thing Can I Do to Make My Partner’s Life Easier Today?
I freaking love this question. That’s why I put it first.
I personally believe that the quickest route to happiness is —> making other people happy. A thoughtful 2 to 3 minute activity in the morning can brighten someone’s ENTIRE day, not to mention make you feel great all day, too.
Since I get up one hour before my wife each day, I have the opportunity to do something tiny for her in the morning. Like, making sure her bike tires are pumped before she rides to work, checking if her headphones are low on battery and putting them on charge, or writing a small love note to sneak in her lunchbox. Tiny tasks —> massive impact.
If you don’t have a partner at home, think about a friend, a coworker, your boss, or even a person you just met. What one tiny thing can you do to make their day easier?
2. What Are 3 Good Things That Will Happen This Week?
Positivity breeds positivity. When you anticipate and look forward to good things happening, other random blessings start to manifest in your life, too.
Anything fun going on at work you’re looking forward to? Meeting anyone cool this week? Are you getting paid or making any extra $ this week? What are the fun hobbies you’re doing?
Feel free to think of more than just 3 things. The more, the merrier. Oh, and BTW… They don’t have to be massive or life-changing events… In fact, looking forward to the smaller and more regular things in life will help you build a habit of simple appreciation.
3. What Tiny Good Habit Am I Trying to Form? (Or a Tiny Bad Habit Am I Trying to Shed?)
My favorite Benjamin Franklin quote…
“Your net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from your good ones.”
It’s easy to set big goals and resolutions in life (especially at the beginning of the year). But sometimes we get lost in the grind and forget the small daily habits that help achieve those big goals.
Instead of trying to change everything at once, just focusing on and mastering one habit at a time can be very powerful.
What is the one thing you are trying to improve this week, or month?
Wishing you a happy, productive, and prosperous day ahead! 💪
