Here’s a little collection of things I do that help sustain my happiness. They offer me doorways into the present – generally a very good place to be. They’re not rules, they’re guidelines. It can take some discernment to apply them properly. They’re not fancy but they make a big difference to me. I hope they can make a difference to you too.
- Pay attention to what you’re doing, and to nothing else.
- Don’t ever hold anything in your hand that isn’t directly related to what you’re doing this moment.
- Stop whatever you’re doing whenever you talk to someone.
- Complete what you start before you start anything else.
- Have a place for everything and put things back there as soon as you’ve finished with them.
- Don’t ever tell a lie – not even a tiny one.
- Never do anything that contradicts your basic sense of what’s good, right and true.
- Do what you love. If you can’t do what you love, then cultivate love for what you do.
- Minimise your choices.
There’s lots I could say about each of these, but I’d rather hear your thoughts. So please leave a comment below.
Thanks … Michael 🙂
