Productive Secrets to live HAPPIER, HEALTHIER and MORE SUCCESSFUL life your OWN Terms.

A Life-changing Thread. 🧵👇
1. Read books Every Single Day.

Ordinary people seek entertainment.

Extraordinary people seek education and learning.
Taking even 15–30 minutes every day (especially during the morning)

to read uplifting and instructive information changes you.

It puts you in the zone to perform at your highest.
2. Do something that terrifies you.

But you don’t have to constantly be battling your fears. 

You only need to be courageous for 20 seconds at a time.
If you courageously confront fear for 20 seconds every single day,

before you know it, you’ll be in a different socio-economic
and social situation.
3. Do something kind for others.

Taking the time to help other people is one of the greatest joys in life.

Helping others opens you up to new sides of yourself.

It helps you connect deeper with those you help and humanity in general.
4. Remove all non-essentials.

Most of the possessions you own, you don’t use. 

Most of the clothes in your closet, you don’t wear.

Get rid of them.
It will boost your motivation and give you clarity and

welcome a new form of energy into your life.

You can use that energy in more useful and productive ways.
5. Stop obsessing about the outcome.

When setting goals, your locus of control should target what you can control.

Do what is right,
let the consequence follow.
6. Defining happiness and success.

Define what wealth and happiness mean to you, in your own terms. 

If we don’t, society will for us — and we will always fall short.

We’ll always be left wanting.

We’ll always be stuck comparing ourselves and competing with other people.
7. Maximum 3 items on your to-do list.

Have no more than 3 items on your to-do list each day.

Instead of doing a million things poorly,

the goal becomes to do a few things incredibly — or better yet,

to do one thing better than anyone else in the world.
9. Healthy life changes.

Stop consuming refined sugar.

It is worse for our brains than it is for our waistlines.

Fast from all food and caloric beverages 24 hours once per week.

Go to bed early and rise early.

Make sure you get 7+ hours of sleep each night.

Consume 30 grams of protein within the first 30 minutes of waking up.

Drink 64–100 ounces of water per day.
10. Rituals for happiness.

Make your bed first thing in the morning.

Write in your journal for 5 minutes per day.

Make a bucket list and actively knock items off.

Fast from the internet 24 hours once per week.

Stop consuming the news or reading the newspaper.

How ♪ MUSIC ♪ Affects Your Productivity.

A Thread 🧵👇🏼 Image
“Music, once admitted to the soul, becomes a sort of spirit and never dies.” – Edward Bulwer-Lytton
— Music and work

With so much of our time being spent at work, and so much of our work being done at computers, music has become inseparable from our day-to-day tasks — a way to “optimize the boring” while looking at screens.
