10 of the best habits to get into ASAP

Happiness is, more often than not, built on positive habits.

These are my Top 10 habits I’ve developed over the last 33 years after studying entrepreneurs, executives from Fortune 1000 companies and my own personal experiences:

Make a daily list

Every morning, make a list of the three most important things you have to do for the day that will make the largest impact. This helps to cut out the noise and forces you to prioritize.

Use the 10 years test

When you run into tough situations, often times it will seem like a disaster. Many years ago, I made a mistake at work and my boss was incredibly upset with me. I immediately became really disappointed in myself and moped around for two days. Fast forward many years later to today and it turns out it was a just a slight bump in the road in my life. It’s such a small issue that I don’t even remember exactly what happened anymore! You know what does bother me though? I could have spent those two days creating something or helping others in their lives instead of moping.

Don’t sweat the small stuff and keep your eye on the big picture.

For example, today I hopped on a call with the creator of a TV show and learned about the entertainment industry. If you improved just a little bit every single day, think of how that effect compounds over a year. The impact becomes dramatic over time…
