March 26th, 2021 | Lifestyle design

We are close to the end of the first quarter of 2021.

At the beginning of the year, I got a blank piece of paper and started designing my lifestyle again from zero.

I noticed that there are a few things that make me happy. And they are small things, that I can do every day.

Some of the things that make me happy and make my day are:
- Working on my business
- Reading books
- Taking walks
- Writing
- Exercising
- Eating healthy
- Studying a foreign language

I've tried to be consistent, and I'd say I've been around 80% consistent with the above. Which is amazing!

But I've noticed something else. Most of the above, don't have a huge impact on my happiness levels, individually. It's only when I do all of them that they add up. The only thing that, individually, has a huge impact on my happiness is working out.

I'm not going to lie. It makes me happier than working on Cyberleads. Happier than making a lot of money on a given day. Happier than writing makes me. Happier than keeping in touch with family and friends. Happier than anything, to be honest.

Not when I do it. Because it sucks at the time. But afterwards.

I know it sounds weird. And maybe a little bit sad. But I need to admit it and remind myself of this.

When I work out consistently, I'm happy. And perform better at everything else I do. I tend to eat much healthier. I tend to to sleep much better. I feel stronger and more confident so I tend to try new things with my business and leave my comfort zone more often. And so on and so forth.

It's a flywheel. I'm sure that if you've worked out consistently you know what I'm talking about.

And I just realized the hack to keep up with my ideal lifestyle. Just now. That's why I jumped to my computer to write this blog post, before I forget it.

I did a great job with designing my lifestyle at the beginning of the year. It's solid. It's simple. It's realistic. And it's doable.

But sometimes, it feels like there are too many checkboxes to tick every day.

Now I think I've figured out the hack:

Focus on working focused on Cyberleads. And exercising. Because when you do those two, everything else falls into place. Automatically. By default.

It's the Pareto of my lifestyle. Plus, I'm happy as fuck.
